A 23-year-old man was beaten to death allegedly by a group of villagers over a land dispute at Thakur Tola in Bihar's West Champaran district. About 12 people surrounded Manjit Thakur while he was returning home from Lauriya Bazar, near Bhaktahan bridge in the village, and beat him up with an iron rod before fleeing from the spot last night, the police said.
There was a dispute between the family of Thakur and that of the accused over a piece of land measuring five cottah, police said. Some villagers informed his family members about Manjit's critical condition who was referred to MJK Hospital at Bettiah. However, Manjit died on the way to the hospital. The deceased was professionally a driver and a resident of Thakur Tola.
