Villagers of Morab village in Dharwad district of Karnataka refused to drink water from a lake after an HIV-positive woman committed suicide by jumping in the lake.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the 150-odd residents of the village had refused to consume the lake water over reports that the woman had recently been tested positive for HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) by a private laboratory.

After the draining process is complete, the authorities will fill the space with water from the nearby Malaprabha canal by December 20, NDTV reported.

As Morab residents stopped using the water from the lake for drinking purposes and instead took to travelling almost three kilometres for fresh water, local authorities chose to empty the lake, Hullur said. Four days ago we recovered her body.

According to the New Indian Express, Dr Spoorthi Havaldar, the village doctor, in an attempt to dispel villagers' concerns, said that the lake water could be used following chlorination treatment. Authorities tried to convince the villagers that the water was not contaminated and that they would test the water, but no one relented. "The water in the lake is being cleared and will be emptied in a couple of days". "When an HIV-positive person dies, the virus also dies". There is no other way.

A former village panchayat member Ravi Kagadal told PTI that the villagers were afraid of contracting HIV/AIDS.

Speaking to CNN News18, BC Satheesh, the Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer (CEO) said, "In some places, the water from the lake is used without treating even for consumption". "The taluk administration wants us to complete the task by December 6". More than 50 people are involved in pumping out water. "We at least need a week to empty and fill the lake".

Navalgund tahsildar Naveen Hullur said they had no choice but to give in to the villagers' demands.
