is the most favourite subordinate of X-2 (Imran), but none of the
members of Secret Service know about his true identity. He lives in
Danish Manzil and is known to others as Tahir Sahib. He is the only
agent who knows that Imran is the Head of Secret Service. Black Zero has
been trained to replicate X-2’s deep, hoarse voice; he gives orders to
the Secret Service members, acting as X-2 when Imran is in the field
working with his subordinates and unable to call directly. This has the
dual effect of reassuring Imran’s team members that he is not X-2, a
fact that almost everyone suspects at one time or other. Black Zero has
the best qualities of an agent; sadly, however, during an adventure in
Darandoan Ki Basti, Black Zero is killed. Imran faces the task of
finding a new agent in Gumshuda Shehzaadi to work in his
Juliana Fitzwater is another very talented member of the Secret Service,
and is second in command. She is a beautiful Swiss girl, who was in
love with X-2 in the early days when Imran had not yet joined the Secret
Services. She always desired to see X-2, though she was also afraid of
him at the same time. X-2 has mentioned in the novels that she has seen
him on many occasions, but has always ignored him. However, when Imran
joins the Secret Service, Juliana gets so impressed by his qualities
that she falls for him instead. Juliana believes that Imran is X-2, and
clearly mentions it to him on one occasion; Imran is initially shocked,
but manages to cover his identity with the help of Black Zero.
Safdar Saeed is the most prominent, respectful, and loyal agent after
Black Zero, and Imran relies heavily on him. Safdar respects Imran
greatly (by heart), and believes that Imran has similar qualities to
those of X-2.
Tanveer loves Juliana and hates Imran. Tanveer is the most
trouble-making member of the Secret Service. He has, on many occasions,
either received warnings or punishment from X-2 for his negligence on

Zafrul Mulk is the nephew of Nawab Muzaffarul Mulk. He was sent to
London for higher studies with his servant Jumman and secured Masters
Degree in Chemistry from Oxford University. When he returned back, his
uncle did not appreciate his modern ideas and asked him to leave the
home. His servant Jumman now known as Jameson was also expelled.
Incidentally they get involved in a case and Imran discovers their
strengths. They are offered to join the Secret Services. With similar
physical structure, Imran sometimes uses Zafrul Mulk to disguise as
Imran. Jameson is very fond of Urdu classical literature and tries to
speak the same language.
Roshee is an Anglo-Burmese girl whose father was a businessman in
Singapore. During WWII, he lost his business and Roshee became a call
girl. After meeting Imran in Bhayanak Aadmi, she becomes
ashamed of her profession. Impressed by her good qualities, Imran offers
her a job in the Central Intelligence Bureau. Later, Imran opens up a
private investigating agency with the name of “Roshee & Co. Forwarding &
Clearing Agents” in Jahannam Ki Raqqasa. She works for Imran for
some time, but later leaves him in Larkiyoan Ka Jazeeradue to his
unserious nature. However, Imran still involves her in many cases later
on. Roshee also knows that Imran is the Chief of the Secret Service.
Imran lives in a modest flat, along with his cook and housekeeper,
Sulaiman. Imran is always messing around with Sulaiman about the food he
is going to prepare, and the conversations between them are always
funny. When Imran’s father Rahman Sahib asked Imran to leave the house,
Sulaiman also came along with him. He is very loyal and does not like
Imran’s bodyguard Joseph, who is always drunk. Later, he gets married to
a girl named Gulrukh.
Before meeting Imran, Joseph was a heavyweight champion. His philosophy
was that whoever could knock him out; he would willingly work for that
person for the rest of his life, considering that person his Boss. In
Challees Aik Baavan, Joseph is serving the villain. Imran not
only defeats Joseph’s boss, but he also manages to easily defeat Joseph.
Since then, Joseph has never left Imran. Joseph likes to remain in a
military uniform with gun holsters on each side, carrying two identical
loaded revolvers. Joseph is insanely alcoholic, beginning each day by
gulping down half a bottle of whiskey to “open his eyes.” If Joseph does
not get his ale, he goes into a deep depression and begins to act
strangely; though he remains fiercely loyal to Imran, no matter what
happens. Joseph cares about Imran to the extent that he considers him as
Captain Fayyaz is the Superintendent of the Central Intelligence Bureau,
under Imran’s father, Rahman Sahib, who is the Director General. Fayyaz
is not a very intelligent officer; but with the help of Imran he is able
to solve numerous cases, resulting in his promotions. Whenever he faces
difficulties, he consults Imran. However, he still hates Imran and wants
to somehow catch him out on an unlawful adventure, so he can put him in
jail. He thinks that Imran is merely an informer of the Secret

novel Raat Ka Shehzaada, Imran helps Sir Sultan by solving a
case; in return he is offered a permanent position in the Secret
Service. Imran, as Chief Officer of the Secret Service, reports directly
to him. Sir Sultan likes Imran for his good qualities, but sometimes he
too gets frustrated with Imran’s unserious behavior. He is an old friend
of Imran’s father.
Rahman Sahib (Karram Rahman) is the Director General of the Central
Intelligence Bureau, and a very strict person both at home and in the
office. Although Imran solves a very mysterious case in Bhayanak
Aadmi, he does not like the way Imran handles the situation;
so he fires Imran and also asks him to leave the family house.
Underneath his tough exterior, he loves Imran and is internally pleased
with his successes. However, his stubbornness does not allow him to
reveal his sentiments.
Imran’s mother, Amma Bi, is an eastern style housewife. She is a victim
of the strict nature of her husband, Rahman Sahib. She does not want
Imran to leave the house, but is helpless to do anything because of her
husband. Whenever Imran visits her, she beats him with her slippers.
Imran’s younger sister Surayya is blessed with the strict nature of her
father. She is also fed up with Imran’s unserious behavior and lets no
opportunity slide to show her anger towards her brother.
