Zubair got 44.77% votes by securing 83,311 votes while Singh secured 71,083 votes, the officials of the Rajasthan election department said.

Bahujan Samaj Party candidate and former union minister Natwar Singh's Son, Jagat Singh, was third. He secured 24,856 votes, they said.

The election to the assembly seat could not be held along with other constituencies due to the death of the BSP candidate ahead of December 7 Rajasthan elections.
