Need help identifying Indian madman in Tintin cartoon

#1 · Posted: 14 Feb 2007 23:09
Hi, would be gratefull if anyone could answer me this:
In one of the Tintin episodes, a man with a turban and round eyes appears. Somehow he makes Prof. Calculus go mad. I can't remember much about him, except that he was evil, he had round eyes, and he was kind of thin, and if I'm not wrong he was kinda indian. Anyone knows in which episode he appears, or\and his name?

Sounds to me like the fakir from Cigars of the Pharaoh - though his victim is Sophocles Sarcophagus, not Calculus.
