Hyderabad, March 19 :
Pieces of what is suspected to be an aircraft were seen washed up on Andhra coast Wednesday, a Telugu television channel reported.
Fishermen, who saw them floating at Kutta Gouduru beach in T.P. Gudur mandal of Nellore district in south coastal Andhra off Bay of Bengal, informed the police.
According to a channel, the authorities alerted the top officials. However, there was no confirmation from any official if the objects seen floating were indeed pieces of an aircraft.
An airplane of the Malaysia Airlines, with 239 people, including five Indians aboard, vanished while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing March 8.
A TV news channel in Malaysia had reported two days ago that missing plane may have crashed either in the Bay of Bengal or in the Indian Ocean.
