The Sakas or the Scythians originally lived a nomadic life in central Asia. In the records of the early Achaemenian emperors of Persia, there are references of Saka people living in three settlements. The Sakas were the alien tribes who entered India and by defeating the native kings, established a strong foundation of the Saka kingdom in India. However there are different theories approached by scholars after a keen controversy regarding the routes through which the Sakas entered India. The most researched and widely accepted theory is that, the main body of the Sakas moved westward from Bactria to Heart, Eastern Iran and Seistan. From there they tried to force their way into the Parthian Empire but was opposed by the emperor Mithradates II.  Consequently the Sakas moved towards the region of Eastern Iran. From East Iran, they found their way to the Indian subcontinent through the Bolan Pass.
