On July 26, the Mumbai Police had warned people against taking part in the challenge and risking one's life and also the lives of others.  Even the Bengaluru Police had cautioned people against taking part in the challenge.

The Delhi Police today cautioned people against taking part in the viral 'Kiki' dance challenge inspired by a popular song of Canadian rapper Drake. As part of the dance challenge, people jump out of a slowly moving car and dance alongside it to Drake's song 'In my Feelings'. Posting a picture of a man dancing on the road alongside an ambulance with its doors open, the Delhi Police tweeted, "Dancing on the roads can open new doors for you."

"Dance on the floors, not on the roads! #KikiChallenge is not worth the fun.#InMyFeelings Keep #Delhi roads safe for all," it said.

In Punjab, the music video has been widely circulated on Whatsapp and Instagram. While in some videos youngsters can be seen shaking a leg to the Punjabi version of the song. The #kikichallenge craze began on June 30 when comedian Shiggy posted a video on his Instagram handle where he is seen dancing on the song on a busy road stretch. While there are hundreds of such videos few of them also show people crashing into poles and tripping over the potholes. In another clip, a woman's handbag was stolen while she was attempting the dance challenge. 

The Kiki challenge has already been banned in countries like Spain, Egypt, and the UAE. Whereas here in India TV and Bollywood actors such as Nora Fatehi, Adah Sharma, and Priyank Sharma have posted videos of them dancing to Drak's song outside a moving car.
