Abdulla, the murderer of Judge John Paxton Norman of Calcutta, 1871

Another mystery image with wonderful captioning, and thanks to carolinebeveridge (see comments below) we now know more about the story behind it. This came as a pair with an image of Judge Norman himself. This one is captioned in the album "The Murderer of Judge Norman of Calcutta" and has a wonderful printed reverse which states (in three languages) "It is particularly requested that any information regarding the antecedents of this Man be communicated to the Commissioner of Police, Calcutta".
