I read (can't remember where at the moment) that in a population census (probably around 1911) the child of a thug used to be recorded as "yet to be thug" in profession column in India. This is because of criminal tribe act, around 1900. I searched in Internet but could not find anything.
I might have misplaced the time, but I am quite sure that an academic in lecture mentioned what I wrote, now, a way should be examining the document of census of British Empire around that time but only document I can find is piketty
Is it true? How can I find a reference to cite?
