Popular actress and UNP parliamentarian who defected to the government last year, Upeksha Swarnamali also known as Pabha, has been hospitalized for injuries sustained during an alleged domestic dispute.
Swarnamali has been admitted to the Sri Jayawardenapura Hospital for treatment for facial injuries.
The police have reportedly said that an inquiry is being conducted into the incident as Swarnamali had been admitted to hospital following an assault.
However, an official complaint on the attack has not yet been lodged with the police.
Swarnamali entered parliament from the UNP after the last general election and later crossed over to the government last year after supporting the 18th Amendment to the Constitution.
