The winner of Sri Lanka’s biggest beauty prize has suffered head injuries after a brawl broke out on stage.
Beauty queen Pushpika De Silva won the “Mrs Sri Lanka” title at a ceremony on national TV on Sunday.
Moments later, the 2019 winner seized Ms De Silva’s crown, claiming she could not be awarded the title because she was divorced.
The prize has now been returned to Ms De Silva, after pageant organisers confirmed she is not a divorcee.
Judges named Ms De Silva the 2021 winner at the Mrs Sri Lanka final in a theatre in Colombo
