You can't use character classes like that (atleast to my knowledge).
You have to specify the symbols you want to add, like
You have to "escape" some of the characters used by the preprocessor itself with
 \. These are \, -, [ and ]

>From JTR documentation:
There are some special characters in rules ("[" starts a preprocessor
character list, "-" marks a range inside the list, etc.)  You should
prefix them with a backslash ("\") if you want to put them inside a rule
without using their special meaning.  Of course, the same applies to "\"
itself.  Also, if you need to start a preprocessor character list at the
very beginning of a line, you'll have to prefix it with a ":" (the no-op
rule command), or it would be treated as a new section start.
