Out of sheer curiosity, I asked a detective in New Delhi last month what it would take for an American to become a detective in New Delhi.
Here’s some of what he had to say:
He should look like a local Indian otherwise he will get exposed here working locally.
Secondly, he should be well versed with the city routes.
Thirdly, the language problem he can only speak english so can’t get information from all places.
Finally, the turn comes to train him about detective techniques like how to be a pretext visitor to a house of Office to extract information.
How to do the Surveillance on a motor bike.
