JAIPUR: A lawyer was beaten to death by a group of around 10-12 people over a land dispute in Rajasthan's Bhilwara. The incident reportedly took place on Thursday night when lawyer Mohan Lal Yadav (40) was returning home after attending a wedding. On the way back, his vehicle was rammed by a tractor near the Takhatpura village. 

Following this, a group of 10-12 people allegedly assaulted him using sticks and iron roads, leaving him lying on the road once when they were done.
