Correction : After the trial, Subodh Roy was deported to the Cellular Jail in Port Blair in 1934. Both Subodh Roy and Kalpana Datta spent 6 years in Andaman.

Lokenath Bal was jailed for 14 years (1932-1946) in Andaman for his role in Chittagong raid. Bal later joined INC.
Ananta Singh was also sent to Cellular Jail. Manoranjan Bhattacharya was hanged in 1932 at the age of just 22. To avoid getting arrested, Pritilata Waddedar consumed cyanide and died in 1932.

it's a shame that the Andaman Airport is named after someone who wrote mercy petitions.
There are also many others who were the leaders of resistance movement within Andaman's Cellular Jail : Trailokyanath Chakravarty, Sachindra Nath Sanyal, HareKrishna Konar, Jibendra Das, Mahavir Singh & Shiv Verma (Mahavir and Shiv were close associates of Bhagat Singh).
Trilokya Nath Chakravarthy (Famous Bengali revolutionary) in his Bengali book, Jele Tris Bachar (Thirty Years in Jail), published in 1938, wrote an another Betrayal story of Savarkar.
Savarkar instigated Trilokya & his friends to go on a hunger strike at Cellular Jail, which they did. But Savarkar himself did not join the strike

Only 3 prisoners in the entire history of Andaman's Cellular jail wrote mercy petitions. Savarkar brothers & Barin Ghose
