Cobra girl to marry her attacker

Nirosha Wimalaratne, also known as the ‘Cobra girl’ or ‘Snake girl’ has withdrawn the police complaint on the Saudi national who had attacked her in Welampitiya recently.

Wimalaratne says the Saudi man is her lover and had acted out of rage and the matter has now been settled.

She also said that the couple plan on getting married and dismissed suggestions that she was mentally unstable.

According to the police she was attacked last week by the Saudi national and received treatment at the Colombo national hospital.

Following information received by the police a team was sent to a location where she was found injured and fallen on the street.

The police said that stab wounds were also found on her body at the time she was taken to hospital.

Wimalaratne came into the limelight after she was arrested last year while having a cobra in her possession at a night club in Colombo.

The girl was however subsequently released and the snake was also handed back to her.

Following the attack by the Saudi man, Wimalaratne had told the media that the ‘Sharia law’ should be imposed on him. (Colombo Gazette)
