In loving memory of KK, loving boyfriend of Kiki... Jaipur police nails it

Police departments across the country have united to warn citizens not to take up the Kiki Challenge, a spectacularly stupid dare that risks not only your life and limb but also that of others.


The Mumbai and UP Police have shared videos of people doing the Kiki challenge to warn people of its hazards, and now the Jaipur Police has done likewise by using dark humour.


Sharing a picture of a man with a garland around it, the Jaipur police writes, "In loving memory of KK: loving boyfriend to Kiki, died while doing the Shiggy."


The challenge which has now gone international, involves you to step out of a slow moving vehicle and dance to the song while the car is still in motion and then get back in the car to complete it. All this while someone films you from inside the vehicle.


So far, Will Smith, Ciara and back home Adah Sharma, Nora Fatehi and Nia Sharma have successfully taken the challenge.


None of these celebrities have encouraged you to try it while driving, cause nuisance or risk your life.


But turns out, there have been several incidents where people have fallen off their vehicle, been hit by a pole, moving car and put unsuspecting travellers at risk while attempting the challenge.


Given the dangerous repercussions, police officials from around the world, including India, Spain, the US, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates, have warned citizens against taking the dance challenge on the road.


If you are caught trying it in Mumbai and Noida, you could face penalty and criminal charges too.


'Dear Parents, whether Kiki loves your child or not, we are sure you do! So please stand by your kids in all the challenges in life except KiKi Challenge,' Noida Police.


More on what the Kiki Challenge is all about here.
