'''Samir Mehran''' was a conspirator working with the [[Kamistan splinter cell]] leader [[Farhad Hassan]] during [[Day 8]]. In the events of Day 8, he led most of the field operations of the Kamistani splinter cell in America. With a businessman supporting him and his own crew of [[Kamistani Revolutionary Guard|Revolutionary Guard]] recruits, he discarded Farhad's original scheme for the rods and created a radiological bomb with which to threaten [[New York City]]. He was shot by Jack Bauer mere moments after he had slit President [[Omar Hassan]]'s throat on a video feed to the Internet. Though he survived the gunshot wounds, he was killed approximately 45 minutes later by cardiac arrest induced at Hassan's murder scene by [[Pavel Tokarev]], who was disguised as an EMT.

On the night of [[Day 8]] Samir was at a secret rendezvous near [[Flushing Meadows Park]], waiting for the nuclear rods to be delivered by [[Sergei Bazhaev]]'s men. When he and Farhad spoke on the phone, Samir warned him that more of their co-conspirators in Kamistan were being arrested. Samir spoke for himself as well as General Wasim when he expressed his anxiety: if the military was completely purged of their supporters, the fuel rods would be useless to them. Farhad angrily asserted his dominance and demanded to know why Wasim didn't call him directly. As they finished the call, Farhad ordered him to be prepared for the eventual arrival of the cargo.

After Samir met with Farhad, they found a height from which to observe [[Josef Bazhaev]] after he stopped with the fuel rods. Samir used a sniper rifle to observe Josef; as his target prepared to leave and accept an immunity deal with the government, Samir opened fire and killed Josef. After bringing the rods back to their [[Forest Hills|secure spot]], Samir informed Farhad that the area was owned by a "businessman" who supports their cause. He introduced Farhad to a new crew of henchmen and then revealed that it would be impossible to bring the rods back to Kamistan. The new plan would be to strike America. He spent some time convincing Farhad that America was the real enemy, and that the US must be attacked to prevent [[Omar Hassan]] from becoming a puppet politician and Kamistan from becoming another corrupt Middle Eastern nation. Farhad seemed shocked but finally agreed to help them, even volunteering to enlist some support. As [[Ali (Day 8)|Ali]] walked Farhad to a phone, the two fought and Farhad escaped. Samir then sent Ali and many of the men to kill him and prepared to evacuate the nuclear materials.

* One of Samir's major supporters was apparently unrevealed. Samir disclosed to Farhad at about [[Day 8: 12:00am-1:00am|12:19am]] that a familiar businessman who supported their cause was the owner of the boat warehouse in [[Forest Hills]]. The businessman was not mentioned again. It seems likely that this character was forgotten or discarded by the writers. This shadowy person was effectively replaced by the diplomat [[Mikhail Novakovich]] as the "man behind Samir", although Samir never knew the identities of his supporters in the Russian government.

* Samir's death is similar to that of [[Iké Dubaku]] in [[Season 7]]. They were both injected with a deadly substance to prevent them from revealing information about their co-conspirators.
* Samir is perhaps the only mastermind on ''24'' who succeeded in achieving exactly what he wanted; as a stark opponent of I.R.K.'s peace treaty with the U.S. and the I.R.K.'s nuclear disarmament, his two objectives during [[Day 8]] were to kill [[Omar Hassan]] and ensure that the peace treaty would not be signed. Even though he failed to witness his latter desire, both of them came to fruition; he secured Hassan's death, and due to the exposure of the complicit Russians that only arose after Hassan died, the treaty was never passed, and the I.R.K.'s nuclear power status was likely secured.
