(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Indian Embassy said on Monday that it has made 'some progress' in its follow-up of Indian media reports about an alleged Prisoner of War (PoW) from the India-Pakistan war in 1971 having been spotted in Oman.''We have got in touch with the concerned Omani ministries and have made some progress,'' a senior official in the Indian Embassy told Muscat Daily.The media reports had claimed that 70 year old Jaspal Singh, a soldier who was presumed dead during the war in December 1971, was seen by an Indian carpenter in a 'jail' in Masirah Islands.However, the official did not provide more details when asked whether the reports were indeed true. Asked whether embassy staff had got in touch with Singh, the official declined to comment, saying the matter involves three countries.The Pakistan Embassy, meanwhile, maintained that it had no information about the case. ''So far, we have not received any information regarding this,'' Ahsan Wagan, deputy head of mission, said.According to the reports, the carpenter who hails from Punjab, the same Indian state as Singh, informed Singh's family recently that he had met him while working in the kitchen of the 'jail'. The carpenter reportedly claimed that Singh told him he was shipped to Oman six years after his capture by Pakistani forces in December 1971.
