Delhi

I am one of many thousands of victims of Delhi's most imaginative tourist scam – even though I've lived in the city for many years and really should have known better. I have now been outsmarted four times by the phantom shit squirter of Connaught Place, and my memories of each occasion make me feel a little foolish. The crime scene in question, Connaught Place, is in the heart of New Delhi and was built by the British in the dying years of the empire, as the city's commercial and shopping district. And although its curving colonnades are less favoured by the modern citizens of Delhi, who flock to huge new air-conditioned shopping malls, they continue to draw large numbers of gullible foreign visitors.

I first became aware of the phantom squirter 11 years ago. I was emerging from an underpass in Connaught Place when a shoeshine man came up to me, and whispered into my ear the word "shit". He then pointed at my right shoe on which sat, to my amazement, a small slug of brownish goo. He offered to wipe it off, in return for 100 rupees – but I suspected something was, well, afoot, and I cleaned it with a few leaves. Some months later it happened again and I had a minor altercation with the shoeshine man. One day, I decided I'd photograph the person who had squirted my shoe. But I was daydreaming as I wandered through the underpass – and was squirted again. This time, I'm embarrassed to say, I became incandescent with rage. To the consternation of passers by, and to my everlasting shame, I grabbed the man and rubbed the filth off my shoe on to his trousers.

I soon became obsessed by the shit squirter. I began researching the history of the scam. There are dozens of accounts on the internet, and several acquaintances had similar stories. The scam goes back many years. Only foreigners get squirted, it seems, and only those wearing closed shoes. I returned several times to the underpass, but to my great disappointment my shoes remained spotlessly clean. I wanted to find out the scam artist's life story. How much money did he make on a good day? Had he ever been caught? What are the mechanics of squirting, how does he get such a neat worm of shit on to a passing shoe? And what does he tell his family he does for a living?
