"Some people have taken pictures by our astronauts to make their claim.
No position can be taken on the basis of these photographs in any way," Braukus said when asked to comment on the controversy surrounding the site of the proposed Rs 24 billion Sethusamudram canal project off India's southern tip.
The bridge currently named as Adam´s Bridge is made of chain of shoals, c.18 mi (30 km) long.
NASA has stated on its website that the bridge´s unique curvature and composition by age suggests that it may be man made.
The Pamban Bridge crossing the Pamban channel links Pamban Island with mainland India.
It refers to both: a road bridge and a cantilever railway bridge.
So there is no basis for these claims," Braukus said.
The report on the Internet that had appeared five years ago had also claimed "archaeological studies reveal that the first signs of human inhabitants in Sri Lanka date back to...about 1.75 million years ago" as does the age of the bridge.
The controversy over the Sethusamudram canal project had got a new lease of life on Wednesday when Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists blocked roads all over India to protest the project that, they say, will damage Ram Setu.
The border between India and Sri Lanka is said to pass across one of the shoals constituting one of the shortest land borders in the world.
Pamban Island (Tamil Nadu, India) with its small port of Rameswaram is about 2 km from mainland India.
