He is portrayed by Ibrahim Renno.
Law & Order: Organized Crime
Bekher first met Detective Elliot Stabler when Stabler and Sergeant Ayanna Bell approached Wheatley, Bekher and Dana outside the Contrapos building. Bekher was taking Wheatley and Dana to Manfredi Sinatra's funeral after he was murdered. After meeting Stabler, Wheatley ordered Bekher to kidnap Stabler's son, Eli, but Stabler rescued Eli and got beaten up by Bekher instead. After unsuccessfully raiding Wheatley's charity event the next day, Stabler spotted Bekher standing by the entrance holding a weapon. Stabler confiscated the weapon from Bekher and discovered that Bekher used that same gun to attack Stabler and murder Manfredi Sinatra and Jocelyn Howell.
After gaining all the evidence they needed to arrest Bekher, Stabler, Bell and the squad suited up to arrest him. Stabler successfully arrested Bekher after chasing him and took him into custody. Stabler and Bell interrogated Bekher about the murders and Bekher tried to deny the allegations but Stabler and Bell showed him the evidence they had against him. While in prison, Bekher reached out to Stabler telling him that he wants to talk and needs protection. When Stabler and Bell met with Bekher at prison, Bekher revealed to them that Wheatley murdered Manfredi Sinatra.
Bekher made a deal with A.D.A. Carisi, Stabler, Bell and Judge Sharon Lee which was to assist the NYPD in their investigation against Wheatley. Bekher agreed to become their informant and help them trap Wheatley but refused to wear a wire. Judge Lee warned Bekher that if he breaks the deal then he will go back to prison for two murder charges. Bekher agreed to go forward with the deal. After Bekher was released from prison, Bekher spoke with Wheatley under police surveillance and Bekher found a bug which the police spotted and destroyed it to gain Wheatley's trust again.
Stabler approached Bekher about destroying the bug and Bekher told Stabler that he did it to earn Wheatley's trust again. Later that day, Bell managed to discover that Bekher purchased a vise which was used to create the bomb that murdered Kathy Stabler. Bell, Stabler and the team approached Bekher about his role in Kathy's murder where Stabler punched him and forced him to tell them why Wheatley wanted Kathy dead. Bekher then accused Angela Wheatley of ordering Kathy's murder which shocked Stabler and Bell.
After Wheatley found out that Richie's girlfriend, Gina Cappelletti, was secretly an undercover detective, Wheatley ordered Richie to murder Gina. After Richie took Gina to an abandoned playground where he held her hostage and shot her in the stomach, Bekher witnessed the murder and buried Gina's deceased body in a shallow grave in that same park. As a result of witnessing Gina's death, Wheatley had Bekher murdered by one of the members of his new security team. Bekher's deceased body was never discovered but Carisi started to suspect that Bekher was deceased after he didn't appear at the trial of Wheatley's for Kathy's murder.
