Demullu said the department took the help of language experts and Google translate facility to decode the words and it was confirmed that the the boat had floated from Mayanmar. “It was only a gold painted chariot. As its structure was made up of wood, it sailed up to sea coast of Andhra Pradesh. We handed it over to the local police for further action,” he added.
