Colombo (News 1st); Mrs. World Caroline Jurie & model Chula Padmendra released on personal bail of Rs. 100,000/- each by Colombo Chief Magistrate on Monday (19).
Earlier, Mrs. World Caroline Jurie and Model Chula Padmendra, were arrested by the Cinnamon Garden Police on three counts, and were granted police bail on Thursday (08th April), and were ordered to appear in Court on Monday (19).
The duo was arrested on the offenses of causing simple hurt and criminal force, committed at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre on Sunday (04th April), at the Mrs. Sri Lanka Pageant.
Sri Lanka Police informed the Court that the incident caused damage amounting to Rs. 400,000/- to the Nelum Pokuna Theatre.
The Colombo Chief Magistrate ordered Sri Lanka Police to obtain advice from the Attorney General on the matter and report to the court.
Ugly scenes were reported at the Mrs. Sri Lanka pageant on 04th April when Pushpika De Silva won the title of Mrs. Sri Lanka, only to end up in the hospital with head wounds after Mrs. World Caroline Jurie ripped off her crown in a snit to bestow it on the runner-up.
Mrs. World Caroline Jurie 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.
