Revolutionary Communist Council of India

The Revolutionary Communist Council of India was an armed political faction in India founded in 1962 by Ananta Singh[1][2] which followed Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tse-Tung Thought.[3][4] The party was also called as Man Money Gun (MMG) Group.[5] In May 1970 state authorities claimed to have arrested some 60 militants of the group in the Jaduguda forest, alleging that the group had attacked a police station in the Ruam region near Jamshedpur.[6][4] The Indian press noted that among the arrested was a 26-year old British woman, Mary Tyler.[3][6][4] The case became known as the Jaguguda Naxalite Conspiracy Case.[6][4]
