Caroline Jurie and Chula released on bail
Reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie and former Supermodel Chulapadmendra Kumarapathirana were arrested by the Cinnamon Garden Police and released on bail today (08).
They were ordered to appear before the Colombo Magistrate’s Court on 19 April.
Police Media Spokesperson DIG Ajith Rohana said the duo was released after obtaining statements and signing a bond.
They were arrested today (08) following a complaint filed by Pushpika De Silva, who was crowned Mrs. Sri Lanka recently.
According to her complaint, after she won the Mrs. Sri Lanka 2021 pageant the duo forcibly took away her crown causing injuries to her skull.
A tense situation arose at the Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World pageant when De Silva was crowned Mrs. Sri Lanka and moments later her crown was taken away by Mrs. World Jurie and bestowed on the 1st runner-up, claiming that De Silva was not qualified for the crown as she is a divorcee.
De Silva refused this claim.
Cinnamon Gardens Police are conducting further investigations.
