The centre witnessed 86.92 per cent voter turnout during the polling which was conducted from 8 am to 5 pm, the chief election office said in a statement.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) had directed that re-polling be held at polling centre number 163 due to technical problems, Chief electoral officer Anand Kumar said.

Polling in 199 out of 200 constituencies was held on December 7 in the state and counting of votes will take place on December 11.

Alwar's Ramgarh constituency will vote later due to the death of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate Laxman Singh.
