Nothing is known about Sanjay's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
Sanjay and a group of workers is escorted to a warehouse at a sugar factory where 500 walkers wander around inside. Jeb tells them that this is their chance to redeem themselves in Virginia's eyes. He then bangs on the door separating them from the walkers they are tasked with killing, as a worker hands the rest their spears. Sanjay drops his spear and attempts to walk away out of fear, but is forced back to his post at gunpoint by Jeb. A worker then proceeds to open the door to a room drenched in a sticky, viscous substance. Unfortunately, the door gets stuck, allowing the walkers to crawl under, grab the unfortunate door handler, and pull him to his doom.
The other workers attempt to fight the dead, but fall one by one as the walkers pull them under the door. With only Sanjay left, Jeb commands him to close the door, but the former is paralyzed with fear. Begrudgingly, Jeb tries to close the door himself, but another surviving worker grabs a hold of his leg as she is being pulled under, begging him to save her. Jeb coldly executes her instead, but this doesn't release his leg from her grip, resulting in Jeb getting pulled under along with her corpse by the walkers. Grabbing onto the descending door, Jeb pleads for Sanjay to save him, but the latter is unable to, resulting in Jeb being pulled away by the walkers to be devoured as the door slams shut behind him.
While cleaning the floor, Sanjay explains to Victor that one of the molasses tanks burst, and that the walkers are covered in it, so when they grab you, it's nearly impossible to break free. He also reveals that this is how the night team died. When questioned about how he made it out, Sanjay says that he stayed back, although he admits he could have done more to help. Sanjay also expresses his admiration of Victor for standing up to Marcus. Victor and Alicia are then summoned by two rangers to pick up their delivery. The group constructs a makeshift corridor to corral the walkers. After Janis reassures him the structure is sound, he asks Sanjay if he is sure he is ready, but Sanjay claims he wants to escape as much as they do. With that, they get into position, as Sanjay raises the door and the walkers come pouring out. At the end of the corridor, the workers quickly dispatch the approaching walkers and drag them away. As the walkers begin to pile up, however, the structure begins to give way. Victor orders Sanjay to close the door, but the latter is nowhere to be found.
Sanjay is later found cowering, too afraid to face the walkers. Victor tries to distract the herd by honking the horn, but the walkers ignore it. Sanjay says that isn't going to work, as walkers choose fresh meat over anything else. Victor orders Sanjay to hand him the knife and follow him. Outside, Victor regrets his decisions, and tells Sanjay that they should have just killed the rangers like he planned. When asked why he didn't, Stand dubs it a good question, before pinning Sanjay and stabbing him in the leg while covering his mouth. He tells the panicked Sanjay that this is his chance to stand up to them like he wanted, before shoving him towards the walkers and onto the floor. Both Victor's and Sanjay's yells get the walkers' attention, as they creep their way towards the helpless Sanjay writhing in pain. The distraction allows Alicia and Janis to grab the deceased ranger's guns and mow down the rest of the walkers, as Victor watches Sanjay get devoured. After it's done, Alicia notices Sanjay dead, and Victor claims he sacrificed himself for them.
