Paba ( Upeksha Swarnamali ) injured beaten up by husband
Actress turned politician Upeksha Swarnamali, popularly known as ‘Paba’, has been admitted to hospital with injuries, after allegedly been beaten up by her husband. Her bodyguards have taken her to Sri Jayewardenepura Hospital, after the incident. The husband has beaten up MP Upeksha Swarnamali after she had danced with a youth at JAIC Hilton Hotel on Valentine Day (Feb. 14) reports say.
A businessman by profession, Mahesh has also threatened and demanded money from her for a business he had secured during a recent tour of Bangkok, Thailand.
In recent times, the couple has been at odds with each other, and a divorce is very likely, reports say further.
On a previous occasion too, Mahesh had assaulted Upeksha, ordering her to vote in support of the parliamentary bill on extending the president’s term.
Prior to their marriage, she had had an affair with the owner of a radio channel, but it broke up as she had not owned up her first marriage that had taken place in a foreign country.
Upeksha is presently being treated at ward no: 18 of Sri Jayewardenepura Hospital, confirmed its director Dr. S. Gamage, although her husband had rejected the assault incident.
She contested Gampaha from the UNP at the last parliamentary polls, and joined the UPFA later.
