Ākramya (आक्रम्य) refers to “stamping on someone (with one’s foot)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.9 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with the Gods: “[...] When Indra fell down there was a great hue and cry. On seeing it a great pain entered the army of the gods. Know from me the vile action that Tāraka has committed against virtue which is sure to bring about his own ruin. He stamped on Indra with his foot (pada-ākramya) after he fell down and seized his thunderbolt with which he hit him with great force. [...]”.
