Gaya: Over 65,000 Bihar Police constables have threatened to go on five days mass leave from October 10 after talks between the state government and the policemen's association failed, an official said on Saturday.

After negotiations with officials of the state administration failed, the policemen would go on leave from October 10 to 14, Bihar Policemen's Association president Jitendra Kumar Singh said.

"We have no option but to protest," he said. He said policemen would not join duty during the mass leave if their demands were not fulfilled.

The association's demands include grade pay of Rs 2,000 at par with other states, appointment of a havaldar over four constables and an assistant sub-inspector over 12 constables.

In the first phase of protests September 10, the constables wore black badges on duty. Then they staged a sit-in during duty hours September 18 followed by two mass hunger strikes - September 26-28 and October 3-5.
