Doing the Kiki challenge could reportedly land you in jail; in Abu Dhabi, three social media celebrities were arrested after officials said their dancing "endangered lives, offended public morals and violated the traffic law".

The "challenge" requires a person to leap out of a moving vehicle and dance on the beat of the song "In my feelings...".

The Kiki challenge, promoted by Canadian rapper Drake, involves jumping out of a moving auto and dancing to his song In my feelings alongside the vehicle. "#KikiChallenge is not worth the fun.#InMyFeelings Keep #Delhi roads safe for all", it said. In a tweet on Tuesday, the Gujarat police said, "Don't pass or accept Kiki Challenge".

Police around the world have warned drivers against performing a viral dance challenge based on Drake's latest hit "In my feelings", saying they could face criminal charges.

The violators are likely to be booked under charges of risky driving under the The Motor Vehicles Act, he added. The Chandigarh, Uttar Pradesh and Jaipur Police also posted cautionary messages on their Twitter handles highlighting the risks of the dare. Videos that have gone viral have shown people crashing into poles and tripping on potholes.

On July 26, the Mumbai Police had also warned people against taking part in the challenge and risking one's life and also the lives of others. However, he also reminded his followers that the challenge is not about getting out of a moving auto.

The police advisory aims to make people aware of the dangers of the dance challenge.
