Jodha becomes shocked. Akbar goes to bed and lies down as he feels sick. She becomes tensed. Suddenly she discovers two conch shells on the floor. They are the shells which Laboni has kept in the Emperor’s room; they are the media of Laboni’s hypnotism over Jalal.

Salim trains his battalion for the war against Mebar. He sees a man who looks like a Mughal soldier, but his behavior is suspicious. Salim catches the man and comes to know that he is a secret agent of Maharana Pratap.
The man is taken to Akbar’s court. Akbar tries to extract information from him. He says that he would better die for Maharana, but would never reveal any information about him.
Akbar is pleased by the patriotism of the man and wants to free him, but the man says that he would not go back to the camp of Maharana, as the Mughal soldiers can follow him and find out the shelter. He takes poison and dies instantly.
Maharana’s men inform that his informer Tej Singh has not returned to the camp. They fear that he might be caught and the Mughals can extract information from him. Rana says that he has complete trust in his agent.
