'ABDULLĀ, KHWĀJĀ, a native of Manī Mājrā, near present-day Chaṇḍīgaṛh, was the keeper of the jail at Chāndnī Chowk kotwālī in Delhi, where Gurū Tegh Bahādur, Nānak IX, was detained under imperial warrant. He was a pious man and truly reverenced the holy detenu. He tried to mitigate the rigour of his incarceration as far as his official position permitted. After Gurū Tegh Bahādur's execution (1675), he resigned his post and went to live at Anandpur, where he served Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, Nānak X, as a physician. His son, Ghulām 'Abbās, served under Nawāb Kapūr Siṅgh as a physician during misl times.
