The Chandigarh Police has warned the youth from taking the Kiki dance challenge, highlighting the dangers of the hugely popular jig. "Be wise - keep away from silly stunts & advise your friends as well to stay safe".

The challenge became a viral phenom earlier this month after social media star Shiggy posted a video doing a dance to the Drake tune after the Canadian singer's album, "Scorpion", was released on June 29. The Delhi Police on Tuesday tweeted advisory over urging netizens to not take up the social media challenge '#InMyFeelings challenge', in order to avoid accidents on road.

"If you dance for #KikiChallenge on the roads, We're sure of making you dance behind the bars!"

Under the picture of a man with a garland around it was written, "In loving memory of KK - Loving boyfriend of Kiki, died while doing the Shiggy".

Similarly, Chandigarh police also issued a notice with the help of Radio Mirchi. Following this, many Bollywood celebraties too joined the squad and took up the challenge.

Colombian Gang Puts Price on Drug Sniffing Dog's Head
Sombra is a 6-year-old German shepherd who has been on Colombia's counter-narcotics police force since she was a puppy. And the gang is offering a bounty of $70,000 for the canine's life, Colombia's national police said last week.

The latest unsafe Internet trend shows people filming themselves getting out of cars and dancing to Drake's "In My Feelings".

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.

Several incidents of people crashing into poles, tumbling out of their vehicles, being hit by cars, and tripping on potholes while attempting the dare also emerged. "Desist from public nuisance or face the music!" the police had said on Twitter.

The videos, particularly, make the challenge look so easy that one might be tempted to give it a shot. In Florida, violators could be hit with a $1,000 fine, per the Guardian; Cairo police have arrested a university student who decided it would be fun to try, Egypt Independent reports.
