  • HIV-Infected Commits Suicide By Drowning In a Lake Villagers Drain Its Water Fearing AIDS

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. Lakshmana, a Moraba gram panchayat member, said to News 18, "Since the time villagers came to know that the deceased was infected with HIV, they have been afraid and refused to drink or use the water from this lake".

The villagers have completely refused to use the water either for drinking or for any other objective till it is drained and new water filled in the lake. The Morab lake is the biggest in Navalgund taluk and the only source of drinking water for villagers and cattle.

Water from the sprawling lake was pumped out on Wednesday evening, after which it will be cleaned and then filled with water from Malaprabha canal. Four days ago we recovered her body. "Due to the fear of infection, the villagers don't want to use the water, and are releasing it", he said.

Authorities first told villagers that they would test the water, but no one relented.

The lake is the only source of drinking water in the area and the source of water for irrigation. The reports claimed that she had been suffering from HIV and that possibly could be the reason why she committed suicide.

Navalgund tahsildar Naveen Hullur said they had no choice but to give in to the villagers' demands. "I will talk to officials to allow us to fill the lake from Malaprabha canal till December 20 or 22".
