Mrs Sri Lanka was aggressively removed while she was being crowned and due to this, she suffered certain head injuries. It is now being said that the Mrs Sri Lanka winner is going to take legal action for the same.
Pushpika De Silva, who won the contest of Mrs Sri Lanka was being crowned after the results were announced on national television. But the 2019 winner of the same contest, Mrs Sri Lanka 2019 Caroline Jurie snatched the crown from De Silva. Jurie claimed that De Silve was divorced and hence was wrongfully claimed as the winner. Then Jurie went forward to place the crown on the runner-up while De Silva was seen walking away with tears in her eyes.
During this exchange with the crown and then forcibly removing it from Mrs Sri Lanka, the winner sustained injuries in her head. The New York PostÂ reported that De Silva was hospitalised for head injuries after her crown was forcibly removed from her head.
Jurie later said to the audience, “There is a rule that prevents women who have already been married and are divorced, so I am taking steps to make the crown go to second place.”
The claim of Jurie about Mrs Sri Lanka De Silva being divorced was investigated by the pageant organisers. They found out that De Silva was separated and not yet divorced.
The organisers further apologised for the tragic insult De Silva faced and also said that she was free to take any legal action against the ‘unreasonable and insulting’ incident she faced.
De Silva post-sustaining the injuries opened up on Facebook as she announced that she is still an undivorced woman. Further, she also added that “A true queen is not a woman who snatches another woman’s crown, but a woman who secretly sets another woman’s crown!”
