Krilencu attempts to kill James Bond and his Turkish host/ally Kerim Bey, first by placing a mine on the outside wall of Kerim's headquarters. It explodes just as Kerim is away from his desk for a few minutes. In a second attempt, Krilencu and his men attack the gypsy camp where Kerim and Bond are visiting.
Later, Kerim's sons disguise themselves as policemen to scare Krilencu out of his hideout. As he comes out of the secret entrance, Kerim shoots him using Bond's portable sniper rifle.
