From taking personal jibes at one another to trash talking, both the contestants showed their endurance and strength in the task. From spraying deodorants to throwing water, housemates try every trick in the book to have the four contestants leave the boxes.

Singh also said that the truck driver is absconding and the police has launched a manhunt for him. "Thanks to their alertness, they have defeated a nefarious plot to target grassroots-level democratic exercise in Jammu & Kashmir", Modi tweeted, indicating that Pakistan-based Jaish was out to disrupt district development council polls and destablise the situation in J&K with what police sources described as a "big attack coinciding with the anniversary of 26/11". "However, we are investigating", Singh said.

In January, three terrorists were killed by the security forces.

He further wrote that the area is being sanitized. This is similar to previous cases in the area, same modus operandi except for the fact that the truck used a fake registration number. Security has also been tightened in the Nagrota area. He said the police are going to thoroughly investigate how these terrorists entered inside the Indian territory and who were assisting them to execute their sinister designs.

"I salute the exemplary courage and bravery displayed by our forces".

In a message to the public of Jammu and Kashmir, the Lt Governor said that the government and the security forces are working day and night to lay the foundation of its progressive and peaceful future and said that no outside forces can derail us from our mission.
