Even the whole media is talking about this. Then naturally the house should also express some sorrow that seven soldiers have died and we are paying tributes to them," Tharoor told ANI.

He further said that when the combing operation ended we got to know that nine to ten soldiers have sacrificed their lives instead of ten. At least for the remaining three, the speaker should have said something.
