Roy, Kiriti. Kiriti Roy was created by the Indian author Nihar Ranjan Gupta and appeared in over eighty stories and novels from 1940 through at least the late 1940s, beginning with Kalo Bhromor.

Kiriti Roy is a Bellem. He is an Indian private detective. He is cynical, wise-cracking, hard-boiled, and two-fisted, and is in many respects similar to Philip Marlowe. But Kiriti Roy works the mean streets of Calcutta, and his enemies are much more colorful than Marlowe’s. Roy fights various Femmes Fatale, both Indian and of the White Peril variety. Roy fights (repeatedly) his archenemy, the Lupin master of disguise Kaalo Bhromor. And Roy fights the Mad Scientist Yellow Peril Doctor Wong, who intends to wipe out the white races of the West with a virus and establish in their place an all-Asian utopia.
