Ao retornar, foi louvado pelos persas e atuou nos anos seguintes como o poder atrás do trono de Balas, que a pouco havia sido aclamado rei. Em 488, quando Cavades I faz uma revolta na tentativa de tomar o trono para si, Sukra apoia-o e depõe Balas. Nos cinco anos seguinte, novamente Sukra atua como poder atrás do trono. Em 493, Cavades o exila para Xiraz. Temeroso de uma revolta, Cavades I pede para Sapor de Rey fazer campanha contra ele, que é preso e levado para a capital. É executado no mesmo ano. (pt)

He first appears in 484, when Peroz I appoints him as the minister (wuzurg framadār) of the empire. Peroz I was defeated and killed the same year during a campaign against the Hephthalite Empire, which seized much of the empire's eastern territory. Sukhra then avenged Peroz I by invading Hephthalite territory and inflicting a major defeat on them. When he returned from his campaign, he was praised by the Sasanian nobles, and Balash was elected as king. However, it was in reality Sukhra that had control over the empire. In 488, Kavadh I made a major revolt in order to seize the throne, and was supported by several prominent Iranian statesmen, including Sukhra, who had Balash deposed and Kavadh installed as the new king. However, Sukhra still remained the power behind the throne. In 493, Kavadh I had Sukhra exiled to Shiraz in order to minimize his power. Fearful of rebellion, Kavadh I asked for the assistance of Shapur of Ray, who defeated Sukhra's loyalists, and had him captured and sent to Ctesiphon, where he was executed. (en)
