LUCKNOW: In a major respite for "stressed out" policemen in Uttar Pradesh, the state government has allowed one-day off to policemen on duty for 10 consecutive days. "Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav yesterday decided to give one day off to policemen performing 10 days of duty," an official release issued here said. Earlier, policemen in Uttar Pradesh had no weekly or fixed offs. They had to apply for leaves that were subject to approval by higher authorities, police officials said. The decision was taken as long duties without offs were causing stress among police personnel and they also could not perform family, social and personal duties, the release added.
