Colombo (News 1st); Mrs. World Caroline Jurie & Model Chula Padmendra were arrested by the Cinnamon Garden Police on three separate counts on Thursday (08).
Police Spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana said according to the complaint filed by Pushpika De Silva, she had noted that she won the Mrs. Sri Lanka 2020 pageant, and later her crown was taken away causing injuries to her.
Ugly scenes were reported over the weekend when Pushpika De Silva won the title of Mrs. Sri Lanka, only to end up in the hospital with head wounds after Mrs. World ripped off her crown in a snit to bestow it on the runner-up.
Mrs. World Caroline Jurie on Sunday (04) at the pageant, claimed De Silva was actually divorced and thus disqualified from holding the title.
“There is a rule that states you have to be married and not divorced, so I am taking steps to make the crown go to the first runner-up,” Jurie told the stunned crowd.
Jurie then took away the gold crown off De Silva’s head and put it on the runner-up, prompting tears and chaos.
Pushpika De Silva posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed on her Facebook page — while denying she is divorced.
“I say a true queen is not a woman who snatches another woman’s crown, but a woman who [helps straighten] another woman’s crown,” she said in a separate post on Facebook.
She acknowledged she and her husband live apart but insisted, “I’m not a divorced woman.”
“I am not divorced and I am still married. However, even a person who is divorced should be allowed to enter such pageants,” she told reporters on Tuesday (06).
