Authorities in southern Indian state of Karnataka drained water from a lake after locals said they found the body of a woman infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) floating on it, officials said Thursday. Despite his efforts, the determined villagers found the necessary equipment and proceeded with their plan to drain all the water from the 36-acre lake. Word immediately spread that the water has been contaminated, creating panic among villagers.

Residents of the village of Morab, near Dharwad, are now facing the prospect of having to walk several kilometres per day to get drinking water after they made a decision to drain all the water from a nearby lake.

The lake is a source of water for about 15 thousand people in Navalagunda taluk's Moraba village. According to CNN News18, the Malaprabha Canal sustains 40 other villages in the Navalgund taluka. Four days later her dead body was recovered by the police from the lake.

Wilder wants Fury rematch as soon as possible
Tyson Fury's promoter Frank Warren is demanding that the WBC review the controversial draw between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. You always seem to have to do a little extra on foreign soil but despite the knockdowns, for me, he was a clear victor .

Locals used to draw water from the lake.

Authorities attempted to convince them that HIV can not be transmitted by water and that there's no risk of getting the virus by drinking the water. "It was decomposed, bloated... villagers decided not to use the water until fresh water was filled in the lake", panchayat development officer B. Nagaraja Kumar said. Villagers alleged that she was suffering from HIV. "There will be no water crisis till then", the PDO said.

Doctors have dismissed claims that the locals risk being exposed to HIV if they consume the water.

Navalgund tahsildar Naveen Hullur said "I will talk to officials to allow us to fill the lake from Malaprabha canal till December 20 or 22".
