According to data sourced from the Ministry of Home Affairs, it has been revealed that deaths among paramilitary forces are more due to conditions like weak heart and diabetes, rather than due to combat operations. The data relates to the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF), which includes CRPF, BSF, ITBP, SSB, CISF, NSG and Assam Rifles. Over a period of 38 months, the number of deaths among these due to combat operations was 1,067, but the number of deaths due to ill-health was more than 3 times at 3,611. While some people may blame poor quality food being served to jawans, the truth is that the opposite is happening, as the deaths are occurring due to high cholesterol and poor lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar has yet again shown that he cares for the jawans by donating a sum of Rs 1.08 crore to the families of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel who were killed in Sukma district in Chhattisgarh on March 11, 2017. It may be recalled that Akshay Kumar has helped people on many occasions including army personnel and their families, farmers, and drought-affected people.
