Later, footballer Odell Beckham Jr's post- his dance video doing Shiggy's moves on road jumping out of a auto, became viral and this gave birth to Ki Ki challenge.

DCP (Cybercrime) Rajdeepsinh Zala said, "The #KiKichallenge is unsafe as some performers jump out of a moving driverless auto, which is clearly illegal". The government agency instructed those who wish to take on the viral challenge to attempt the dance in a safe and non-public road and to avoid dancing in incoming traffic.

Also known as the In My Feelings challenge or "doing the Shiggy" after comedian Shiggy posted a video on Instagram where he was seen dancing to the song, the challenge has spread across the world. In India, social media lovers have jumped on the bandwagon and out of cars or autos to be part of the challenge.

Some videos show dancers stumbling on potholes or dropping out of the cars.

The police warns, "Kiki Challenge may land you in a hospital bed or behind bars, depending on what you do and where you are".

A senior police officer said there are sections under the Delhi Police Act under which the people indulging in the act can be booked for creating nuisance on the roads or playing loud music. These people put their own life as well as the lives of others at risk. One video shows a lady having her tote stolen while completing the challenge, and another shows a man being hit by a auto while he moves.

It poses a grave risk, not only to the dancing driver, but also to all road users, according to Col Saeed Obaid bin Aran, director of traffic and patrols department at the UAQ police.

You have to hand it to him, he tried it, but he definitely needed a few more attempts before giving us this...rather questionable attempt at the dance challenge!
