Kiki Challenge leads three Mumbai youth to \'Swachata Abhiyan\'-1

Mumbai: Performing the Kiki Challenge turned out to be quite embarrassing for three Mumbai youth when Vasai Railway Court, on Thursday ordered them to clean all the platform of Vasai Station.

Three youth-Shyam Sharma (24), Dhruv (23) and Nishant (20) performed the Kiki challenge in front of a moving train and an ambulance.

A video of their challenge at Western Railway's Vasai station had gone viral on social media after it was uploaded a week ago and was viewed by over 2.2 million people.

Soon trouble cropped and Shyam Sharma was nabbed from a mall yesterday. He revealed the whereabouts of the other two, who too were arrested soon after. They had been arrested under sections 145 B (indecency or nuisance), 147 (entering railway premises or damaging property) 154 (endangering the safety of passengers) and 156 (performing stunts) of the Indian Railway Act, said sources.

Subsequently, the court ordered the three to clean all platforms of Vasai station from 11 am to 2 pm and then, between 3 pm to 5 pm so as to create awareness among commuters of the dangers of stunts like the Kiki challenge.

The Kiki challenge was introduced by Canadian rapper Drake, which involved people jumping out of a moving vehicle and dancing to his song "In My Feelings"

Police from several states have cautioned people against taking the Kiki challenge since it poses a danger to their lives as well as that of others.
