During the crowing of the new Mrs. Sri Lanka 2020/2021, Pushpika De Silva, Mrs. World Caroline Jurie forcibly grabbed the crown from De Silva's head. As a result, Jurie, who was also the previous Mrs. Sri Lanka titleholder, was arrested and released on bail.

De Silva had to be taken to a hospital afterward at the Sunday gala at Colombo’s Nelum Pokuna Theatre. A senior police official also reported that Jurie had been arrested with police stating that the hearing was set for 19 April.

LEGAL MATTERS

De Silva said she would drop the charges if Jurie apologized, which the current Mrs. World refused to do, to which De Silva responded, “I tried to end this out of court, but she has refused."

The senior police officer said she had specifically been arrested for damaging the venue at which the pageant was held as well as for assault. She was released on bail.

JURIE EXPLAINS

Jurie attempted to explain her actions, stating that De Silva did not deserve the prize as she was divorced. She expressed that Mrs. Sri Lanka had to be married to take part in the pageant.

The Mrs. Sri Lanka competition is seen as incredibly important in the country.

That being said, De Silva and now officially Mrs. Sri Lanka is still technically married. However, she and her legal husband are estranged from each other, although she still holds the official title of being married.

SHE'S NOT ALONE

Jurie was not the only contestant involved in the shocking incident. Sri Lankan model Chula Padmendra was also entangled in the incident, with a police spokesman stating that:

"Police arrested Caroline Jurie and model Chula Padmendra over Sunday's incident on charges of simple hurt and criminal cause."

Meanwhile, the new Mrs. Sri Lanka didn't let the incident stop her from using her platform to spread positivity. She dedicated her win and crown to single mothers and their strength in raising children all by themselves.

HEAD INJURIES

Expanding on her injuries, De Silva said that they targeted her head. In the released clip, it is obvious that De Silva was in a lot of pain as Mrs. World grabbed the crown.

Much of her hair was stuck to the crown while being pulled by Jurie. Another individual offered to assist Jurie in a more passive way of removing the crown, but she refused, using force as she did so.

The organizers of Mrs. World have responded to the event in a press release. They stated that they are troubled by the actions taken by their representative and feel ashamed on her part.

The Mrs. Sri Lanka competition is seen as incredibly important in the country. The wife of Sri Lankan's Prime Minister even opted to participate as one of their many contestants.
