Treacherous Waters is a case featured in Criminal Case as the one-hundred and thirty-fifth case of the game. It is the twentieth case of the game's World Edition (Season 3) and also the second case to take place in South Asia.
During the investigation, Elliot hacked into the Mumbai Police files and found out that Deepak was investigating guru Om Padmasana. Later, Chief Medhekar called the team, telling them that he's going to arrest the guru for the murder. After gathering enough evidence, Jack and the player incriminated the victim's sister, call center agent Amrita Kumar, as the killer.
Amrita initially denied killing her brother but eventually admitted the crime. Amrita was alone in the museum when she felt a person approach her from behind, arousing her fear of being mugged. Taking Deepak's advice in self-defense, she turned around and fired her gun without identifying the person first. Judge Adaku gave Amrita a 7-year sentence for trying to cover up the accidental homicide.
Post-indictment, Chief Medhekar of the Mumbai Police Department told Jonah and the player that Deepak was on the trail of a mysterious criminal but died before showing the evidence. Upon finding Deepak's evidence box, the two cops found the passport of a certain Ezra Hope, a desert hippie the player met in Rhine Canyon. Elliot confirmed that Ezra and Guru Om Padmasana were the same person. The guru said that he could only vaguely remember his life before he saw a bright flashing light and decided to move to India.
The guru advised Jonah and the player to go to the museum. There, they found a golden charm which was sent to Dupont for analysis. He said that the strange symbol on the charm stood for forgiveness. Unable to pin any crime on the guru, Jonah instead gave the charm to Marina. He told her that he had intentionally missed while aiming to shoot her when she was a student in Moscow because he fell in love with her at first sight. Marina barely accepted Jonah's apologies, telling him that it would take more than the amulet to earn her friendship.
