“With Aurangabad bagging a seat in the list of cities to be developed as smart cities across the country, the security and monitoring apparatus have received a boost. We are set to get 1,500 CCTV cameras at 800 squares, apart from six drone cameras and a mobile surveillance van,” said Aurangabad’s Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar in conversation with The Times of India.
“With CCTV cameras likely to become functional before the year ends, prevention, detection and conviction in crime cases will reach a new high,”
