Does killing a cow accumulate karmas equivalent to suffering those many lives equivalent to the number of hairs on the cow? (Hairs on a typical cow are millions/trillions in numbers)

Is there any such boon to cows/curse to cow killers?

I was informed this fact is based on the scriptures by my Guru once, so needed clarifications.

Yes. A person who kills cow has to rot in hell for as many years as there are hairs on the body of the cow.

He, who, without being checked by the restraints of the scriptures, sells a cow, or kills one, or eats the flesh of a cow, or they, who, for the sake of wealth, suffer a person to kill kine,--all these, viz., he that kills, he that eats, and he that permits the slaughter,--rot in hell for as many years as there are hairs on the body of the cow so slain.
