Police said a man was arrested on suspicion of mistreating cattle. The incident took place just a day after the mother elephant ate pineapple fruit inside and died in Kerala (India).
Guarayal Singh, the owner of the cow, said he heard an explosion about 20 meters away from his house, so he ran out to find his cow badly injured. Soon after, police and medical team came to assist.
Singh accused his neighbor who had harmed the cow while grazing.
