Andaman Islands.In the notorious 'Cellular Jail' many of the inmates were executed, either judicially or clandestinely. During World War II the Japanese occupied the islands and were not welcomed as liberators and created their own record of cruelty. The local tribes took up guerrilla activities against the Japanese. After India gained independence in 1947, the islands were incorporated into the Indian Union
