    Option 3 is the right answer

    The last days of Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, was spent as a prisoner in the Shah Burj of the Agra Fort for eight years. He was captivated by his son Aurangzeb,Though he was allowed all comforts in the prison and was attended by his favorite daughter Jahanara Begum, he was very closely watched and not allowed any access to the people outside. Nor was he permitted to correspond with anybody or allowed to see anyone except in the presence of Aurangzeb’s agents. A bitter correspondence ensued between the father and the son and Aurangzeb blamed him for a partiality towards Dara and asked him to submit with resignation to the Divine Will. The captive ex-emperor was deeply offended by these acts of his son.
