National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon Tuesday met Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley to brief them on developments along the Line of Control (LoC).

The meeting took place at Sushma Swaraj's residence. On Monday evening, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had called Sushma Swaraj, the leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha, and Jaitley, the leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha, to discuss the situation along the LoC.

Border tensions have escalated sharply since Jan 6 when a Pakistani soldier was killed in alleged firing by Indian forces along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.

Two days later, on Jan 8, Pakistani soldiers killed and mutilated the two Indian soldiers - one of the soldiers was decapitated and his head taken - in Mendhar sector in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.
