Tamil Nadu police said that the 55-year-old man identified as Muthu, used coconut oil as a lubricant to r*pe the injured cow. Muthu was charged with committing an unnatural s*xual act. Muthu has confessed to the crime and asked for leniency. A member of Blue Cross of India (BCI), an animal welfare group, witnessed the incident.
BCI officials received a complaint about the wounded cow and came to the scene to investigate. When a volunteer arrived, he was initially confused by seeing Muthu laying next to the cow. When he took a closer look, he realized that the man was defiling the cow and an empty bottle of coconut oil was laying next to him.
Muthu attempted to flee the scene, but was detained by the volunteer until police arrived. The cow was taken to a veterinary hospital, where it has confirmed that the animal had been defiled. The animal died in the hospital due to injuries.
