Maria Alyokhina, one of two members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot held in a prison camp for criticizing Vladimir Putin, has been reprimanded four times for oversleeping, Russia media reported.

The Ria Novosti news agency quoted prison official Stanislav Volegov as saying that Alyokhina had been reprimanded. He denied accusations that the Kremlin critic was being unfairly targeted.

"She does not follow the rules," he said.

Alyokhina, 24, the mother of a small child, was sentenced to two years in prison for a protest in a church against then prime minister Putin as he was campaigning to reclaim the presidency.
