Pakistan Police Raid Finds Crowned Ancient Persian Mummy

 

News Category: Cultural

 October 23, 2000

 


TEHRAN Pakistani police said on Sunday they had found a crowned ancient mummy, possibly of an Iranian queen, during a raid in the southwestern town of Kharan near Quetta.


They said the mummy, estimated to be 2,500 years old, was found packed in a sealed box during a raid on the house of an "important personality" in Quetta, the capital of Pakistan's Baluchistan Province bordering Iran and Afghanistan.
Police declined to disclose the name of the "personality", but said initial information suggested the mummy had been in the possession of someone in the port city of Karachi, who had been murdered.


Kharan had once been part of ancient Iran and it was believed that the jewelry of the old Iranian royal families was buried there. The mummy recovered from the Quetta house was heavily laden with jewelry, including a crown and a golden plate at her chest, the police said.
