try with this code(i have used in java), do changes as per your requirement

Issue issue = (Issue) transientVars.get("issue");
	for(int i=1;i<=5;i++){
	public void createSubtask(Issue sIssue) {
		MutableIssue mutableIssue =ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory().getIssue();
		IssueType issueType = IssueCustomFieldConstants.constantsManager.getIssueTypeObject(3);//enter subtask issue type id as int
		Map<String, Object> params = new HashMap<String, Object>();
		params.put("issue", mutableIssue);
		final JiraAuthenticationContext authenticationContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext();
		User currentUser = authenticationContext.getLoggedInUser();
		try {			
			IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
			Issue issue = issueManager.createIssueObject(currentUser, params);
			SubTaskManager subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager();
			boolean isSubtaskEnabled = subTaskManager.isSubTasksEnabled();
			subTaskManager.createSubTaskIssueLink(sourceIssue, issue, currentUser);
			if (!isSubtaskEnabled) {

		} catch (CreateException e) {
