It’s been a trend set by people that whatever challenge is viral on the internet, they are curious to try it at any cost. For instance, “Kiki challenge”. You might have seen people getting out from the car or auto and doing this challenge by singing and dancing to the song.
The lyrics of the song goes on like this, “Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you’ll never ever leave from beside me. ‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya. And I’m down for you always.”
It may sound so good to hear but the challenge that became viral is the stupidest thing in the world. People are not seeing the adverse effects of what a Kiki challenge can do to people. We have seen people getting banged by the road-side posts, cars and sometimes people have even lost their lives by performing this crazy challenge.
The police force of all cities in India already warned people of fines and arrests for taking part in this challenge. But still, three youths from Mumbai didn’t stop as they went about their business. Yes, the boys took the challenge to another level by performing this Kiki stunt alongside a moving metro train.
Guess what happened? They were asked to clean the Railway station.
The three youths, identified as Nishant Shah (20), Dhruv Shah (23) and Shyam Sharma (24) who is a television serial actor were seen performing mad stunts on trains and platforms. The video of boys performing dangerous stunts was uploaded on the Internet and it became an instant hit on social media touching more than 1.4 million views on YouTube.
Mumbai Police Twitter handle tweeted this when Kiki challenge went widespread in this country. “We love your safety and can’t leave it to be decided by Kiki! #GetInToTheCar #kikiChallenge #InMySafetyFeelings.”

“They were in tears when we got them,” said an official. The three boys were produced in the railway court at Vasai later in the day. The railway court has given them a strict order to clean up Vasai railway station for three days this week.
In addition to that, they have to keep an eye on people who are involved in performing such stunts. They have to monitor this from 11 am to 2 pm and from 3 pm to 5 pm.
Videos of the “awareness drive” and “cleanliness work” have to be provided to the court and then the court will decide on further punishment if any.
Western Railway’s senior divisional security commissioner Anup Shukla said this is a “one of its kind task” specified by the court. “It will help create awareness among commuters against the dangers of Kiki challenge,” said Shukla.
