Hyderabad | 8th April 2021
A literal shining spot amidst the gloominess caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic came with the discovery of a copper pot brimming with gold and silver coins, and jewellery.

The pot was dug out from an agricultural field belonging to a realtor, Narasimha, at Janagaon's Pembarthy village yesterday, April 7. Traditional ornaments - including chevi kammalu, pustelu, and nagapedigelu, and rings, bracelets, and other ornaments were also found in the pot.

Narasimha, who found the pot, immediately informed the local police about his discovery.

Alongside the police and the revenue officials who rushed to the spot, the residents of nearby villages also flocked to Pembarthy to see the ornaments and coins for themselves.

Disclosing more details about the discovery, Jangaon ACP Vinod Kumar revealed that they had seized the 18 tolas of gold ornaments and over 2 kgs of silver ornaments found in the pot.

Kumar said that Narsimha had purchased a total of 11 acres of land near NH 163 two months ago and was levelling it with a bull-dozer before plotting the land for sale when he chanced upon the pot of treasure.

Police officials told the press that the jewellery had been examined by a local goldsmith who found it to be made of real gold and silver. Joint Collector A Bhaskar Rao monitored the entire process.

Local archaeology buff R Ranthnakar Reddy also visited the spot. He said that the exact age of the jewellery was yet to be confirmed by the Archaeology Department.

"An inscription from the Kakatiya period was found near a tank in the village. If it is deciphered, perhaps it will shed some light on the ornaments too," Reddy added.

Following the discovery, Pembarthy Sarpanch A Anjaneyulu Goud urged the officials of the Department of Archeology to take up extensive excavations across the village claiming that more such ornaments might be "hidden" in other plots in the area.
