The Chandigarh Police has warned the youth from taking the Kiki dance challenge, highlighting the dangers of the hugely popular jig.

The challenge, also known as 'In My Feelings Challenge', involves jumping out of a moving car and dancing alongside it to American rapper Drake's latest song, 'Kiki do you love me'.

"Youngsters should desist from taking the Kiki challenge. It may look exciting but is indeed dangerous," Chandigarh Senior Superintendent of Police Shashank Anand told PTI today.

He said the police would take strict action against those who were found involved in taking up the dance challenge.

"We will take action under the Motor Vehicles Act as it falls under dangerous driving (category)," said Anand.

The SSP maintained that a violator will be issued a challan and possible impounding of the vehicle.

The police in a tweet said, "Thinking about taking up the #kikichallenge in #Chandigarh. Don't even dare!"

The dance challenge has prompted a number of police agencies across the world to issue warning advisories.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh police also issued a cautionary tweet highlighting the risks involved in such dares.

"Dear parents, whether Kiki loves your child or not, we are sure you do! So please stand by your kids in all the challenges in life except #kikichallenge #KiKiHardlyAChallenge #InMyFeelingsChallenge #UPPolice (sic)," read the UP police tweet.

Some videos of the challenge, uploaded on the internet, show oblivious dancers crashing into poles, tripping on potholes and even falling out of cars.

One video shows a dancing woman's handbag being stolen. Another shows a man getting hit by a car.
