Later Geetha filed a police complaint, refusing to settle the case as both women insisted on being the cow's owners. Subsequently a case of theft was registered against Sasilekha and her son. Both of them later got bail from Kerala high court.
On further inquiry, police found that the mother of the disputed cow was alive. Soon the court ordered a DNA test on both cows. The report concluded that blood samples of disputed cow and its mother were not matching, hence, giving Sasilekha the possession of the animal.
"It is a rare case. Perhaps this is the first time a DNA test was held on a cow to find out its real owner. We are planning to seek compensation from the complainant for undue mental agony inflicted on my client," said N Chandra Babu, the counsel for Sasilekha.
