A local court in Maharashtra’s Palghar district ordered three people to clean the Vasai railway station for three consecutive days for posting a video which showed them taking the “Kiki challenge” on a moving train.
The viral Kiki challenge involves jumping out of a moving vehicle and dancing to Drake’s song “In My Feelings”.
The video, shot by Shyam Sharma (24), Dhruv (23) and Nishant (20) at Western Railway’s Vasai station, had gone viral on social media after it was uploaded a week ago and had been viewed by over 1.5 lakh people.
A senior Railway Protection Force official said that they were arrested and produced in the Vasai railway court which ordered them to clean the local railway station for three consecutive days and also inform passengers to desist from stunts like the Kiki challenge.
“The railway court ordered that the three men would clean all platforms of Vasai station from 11am to 2pm and then, between 3pm to 5pm, will create awareness among commuters of the dangers of stunts like the Kiki challenge,” the official said.
“We arrested Shyam Sharma from a mall yesterday and he revealed the whereabouts of the other two, who too were arrested soon after. Sharma has previously worked in television serials while the other two have a channel on YouTube,” the official said.
