Is Bangalore providing safe drinking water?

Is Bangalore providing safe drinking water?: "One person has died and 250 more are ill after consuming contaminated water supplied by the city corporation. The question looming large is whether Bangalore is providing safe drinking water?

The government hospital in Bangalore's Bharatinagar area was flooded with about 250 cases of gastroenteritis since Sunday night. One person is dead and two are still recovering at the hospital.
