Madurai: Citing rules, central jail authorities
here refused to open the main gate for Union Ministers MK
Alagiri and Napolean who were visiting a party functionary
arrested in connection with a land grabbing case, officials
said on Tuesday.

The incident happened yesterday.

Authorities said they had come as partymen and not
as ministers and hence jail manual rules had to be followed.

Jail Superintendent Tamizhselvan said the rule was same for
all.

Later the ministers entered through the mini-door"(Thitti
Kathavu) provided at the entrance and met DMK District
secretary Karuppasamy Pandian inside the prison, officials
said.
