After capturing King's Bridge, Ajay Ghale is sent to Utkarsh to rendezvous with a Golden Path cell operating in secret within the village. Upon arriving, he secretly observes Pagan Min meeting with the family harbouring resistance fighters and offering "protection" for them from the Golden Path. Upon leaving, the Royal Guard entre and kill them in their home. Afterwards, Ajay boards a buzzer and chases Pagan to KEO Logistics. He then kills him, only to discover that the man he killed was Pagan's body double, Eric.
Later on, Utkarsh is attacked by the Royal Guard with artillery. Ajay quickly travels to the town, where he protects the survivors by fending off attackers, whilst the Golden Path destroy the artillery stations (Balance of Power: Sabal), or Ajay goes to destroy the artillery (Balance of Power: Amita).
