The reigning Mrs World was arrested on Thursday by Sri Lankan police after allegations she injured the winner of the Mrs Sri Lanka beauty pageant during a weekend dispute about the Sri Lankan winner’s marital status, officials said.
Caroline Jurie, who is Mrs World, was summoned by Cinnamon Gardens Police in Colombo and placed under arrest. She has been charged with intimidation and assault.
Jurie has refused to apologize to Pushpika de Silva, who won the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant on Sunday.
Minutes after the winner was announced and crowned by Jurie, Jurie claimed that de Silva was disqualified as she was divorced. She then removed the crown and placed it on the first runner-up, declaring her the new winner.
De Silva alleges that Jurie injured her while trying to remove the crown. She was recrowned on Monday by organisers, who disputed Jurie’s claims that de Silva is ineligible.
