Baby-faced R Venkatesh blinks rapidly while speaking giving the listener the impression of watching someone unable to yet fully comprehend the world That is perhaps partly true for the 22-year-old lad from Thideer Nagar in Trichy a slum comprising illegal encroachments of migrants from across the state Venkatesh has dreams of building his own house – he wants to be a rich man he says with a shy smile – while continuing to drive a Tata Ace which he has been doing for the past three years 22-year-old Venkatesh says he has lost the opportunity to find a good job abroad thanks to false cases being filed against him Firstpost/Sandhya Ravishankar “I failed in tenth standard and never went back to school” he told FirstPost “Padippu varalai (I had no aptitude for studies)” he grinned He faces grinding poverty at home – Venkatesh’s father is a ‘pandal’ renter providing ‘shamianas’ (large tents) for weddings and funerals In a good month he manages to make Rs 500 a day for 15 days Business though is usually erratic leaving the family of six hungry often Young Venkatesh wanted to break this cycle of poverty Scouting for jobs he came across an ‘agent’ who offered to get him a job as a driver in the Gulf for a fee of Rs 2 lakhs Venkatesh agreed and asked his mother to arrange the initial Rs 50000 from a local moneylender “There was a small fight in our area in mid-2015” recalled Venkatesh “I was standing with my friends talking and joking around when suddenly the police came and rounded us up We were taken to the local station and cases were slapped on us under Sections 110 (of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) bond for good behaviour for petty offences) and 75 (of the Madras City Police Act pertaining to maintaining public peace) The case was wrongly filed I had not taken part in any fight I told the police this but they still lodged the case It is yet to come up in court” he added Due to this case Venkatesh’s passport application process is stuck in limbo He says the agent has told him to come back after the case is over in court For Venkatesh it is back to the Tata Ace terrible poverty and no way of escaping this vicious cycle Ruining lives Complaints of arbitrary police action as in the case of Venkatesh abound in the urban slums of Tamil Nadu No records are available with the state police on how many cases have been filed under these sections which are most often used on youngsters like Venkatesh 26-year-old Rajamurugan is angry at being constantly picked up by cops for no fault of his Firstpost/Sandhya Ravishankar In 2015 a Tamil film called ‘Visaranai’ (Enquiry) was released based on a real life experience of police brutality and harassment Directed by Vetrimaran this film went on to become a hit highlighting the reality of how innocent youngsters are victimised by the system and the subsequent loss of innocence of these youth Activists agree that police excess and arbitrariness is a stark reality pushing youngsters back into a life of poverty and crime “Invariably when any crime happens slum dwellers are picked up” said V Suresh National General Secretary of the People’s Union for Civil Liberties “These are people living on the margins of society who find it tough to have proper documentation to prove their innocence The police believe in beating first and then talking There are lots of cases like this of innocent youngsters being targeted First suspects in any crime are invariably young boys from the slums If you haven’t done anything and you’re thrown into jail 3-4 times you’ll end up thinking I might as well do something commit some crime It is a vicious cycle of criminalisation Very few police officials have the guts to buck the politicians to put institutional reforms in place” he said Activists point to the incarceration trends in America and the race differentiation inherent in the system to show how a particular section of the populace is more vulnerable to being targeted and stereotyped by the police According to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) an organisation based in the US African Americans and Hispanics made up 58% of all prisoners in the US in 2008 even though this section comprises only roughly one quarter of the population The organisation analyses data to show how African Americans are jailed at nearly six times the rate of whites In India too argue activists slum dwellers and minorities could well be targeted unfairly The case though is yet to be made out definitively thanks to a lack of data The Tamil Nadu police denies these allegations “We as police have nothing malafide against any particular section our action is purely guided on merit” said a senior police official in the state on condition of anonymity “If a person has already committed a crime or has the potential to commit a crime we take action This is purely for security purposes and preventive in nature at times The police force has nothing against any segment of the population whether they are in slums or any other place If there is such an issue we will have to seriously look into it and take corrective action if such activities are happening” he said Fear of the khaki But the reality is that life in a slum is lived in constant fear of the khakis Such as these friends and neighbours C Rajamurugan and M Srinivasan hailing from a slum along the banks of the Korai river who say they have been victimised unnecessarily for the past three years Rajamurugan a 26-year-old BE (Computer Science) graduate works at an IT company based in Chennai and is conducting placement training for students at a college near his native town Trichy Six months ago Rajamurugan says he was returning home after buying dinner for his friend Srini when cops suddenly picked him up and took him to the station “I showed them my ID card but they did not relent” he said “They kept me there for hours They picked me up simply because I was going back home late in that area” he alleged Rajamurugan also alleges that about two weeks ago police once again picked him up when he was finishing a cup of tea on the roadside “They made us sit for six hours in the station threatening to file Section 110 and Section 75” he said shaking his head 27-year-old Srinivasan recounts how he was brutally beaten by police in a case of mistaken identity Firstpost/Sandhya Ravishankar Srinivasan 27 alleges that he was beaten badly while offering prayers at a pandal during Vinayaka Chaturthi in September last year “Because I was wearing a white veshti (dhoti) and a white shirt they thought I was some small time katchikaaran (party member)” he told FirstPost “It was a case of mistaken identity and they released me once they realised that My shirt was full of blood because they had beaten me so badly” he said Srinivasan drives an autorickshaw for a livelihood and has completed schooling up to the eighth standard “I have lost faith in God now after this” he said miserably As urban slums turn into roiling dense congested masses of humans the youth of the state want to get out of the claustrophobic vicious cycle of poverty crime and corruption The next
