Furthermore, according to The Indian Express, she would have Prime Minister Narendra Modi by her side when she starts this process, where she is likely to present a citation and Rs 5 lakh for each fallen soldier.

She will start the citation process by honoring seven such families in Delhi on April 8 and then move ahead from there.



These seven families have been carefully chosen by the Bangladesh and Indian governments with four of them belonging to the Indian Army, and one each from the Air Force, Navy and the BSF.

In past Bangladesh had honored many Indians from all walks of life for playing a crucial role in their liberation.
