Hindustan Times: Marking the spot: A new website lists, remembers soldiers who died on duty. “Major Akshay Girish Kumar died in the line of duty in November 2016, aged 31, fighting terrorists at Nagrota in Jammu & Kashmir. His life, his lovely nature and his sacrifice have been immortalised on a new website… It’s an online memorial that features names, bios and brief memorial notes on Indian armed forces personnel who have died on duty. The eventual aim is to document every such death since August 15, 1947. It has put together 12,628 profiles so far, including those in a section for ex-serviceman who died after retirement.”
