In Abu Dhabi, three "social media influencers" were arrested after posting a video of themselves doing the challenge, according to reports. "Be wise - keep away from silly stunts & advise your friends as well to stay safe".

The Kiki challenge shows a video of people inspired by rapper Drake's number "In my feelings", stepping out of moving cars and dancing.

Further, police in Spain have warned drivers against the challenge, saying they could be charged if caught.

Israeli politician Moshe Kahlon came under fire from road safety officials on Monday after he posted a video of his own "In My Feelings" dance, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The Kiki Challenge is all about getting down the moving vehicle and dance as long as the driving person captures it. The image accompanying the post read, "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. "#KikiChallenge is not worth the fun", Delhi Police had tweeted. Those still clueless about who or what Kiki stands for and what sort of challenge it poses to teenagers, it's time to return to the basics. Desist from public nuisance or face the music! Another Sola resident, who had accepted the #KiKichallenge some days ago, says, "This challenge needs a lot of creativity and planning but people must ensure safety first".

One woman was also robbed as she concentrated on her moves, while other oblivious dancers have tripped over potholes, crashed into poles and fallen out of moving cars.

Mumbai police also put out the message on digital signboards in the city.

The video shows the woman with sunglasses and red lipstick dancing in the passenger seat of the auto which is driving through a forested area with the door open.

The #InMyFeelings challenge may be on its last legs after a Florida man's version of the popular dance is going viral for the wrong reasons.
