Prime News, National (Mumbai), August 10:- Vasai Railway Court on Thursday ordered three youth, who performed the Kiki challenge in front of a moving train and an ambulance, to clean the Vasai railway station for three days.

A senior Railway Protection Force (RPF) official said that the three involved were asked to spread awareness among people to not take up these challenges.

“The railway court ordered that the three men would clean all platforms of Vasai station from 11 am to 2 pm and then, between 3 pm to 5 pm, will create awareness among commuters of the dangers of stunts like the Kiki challenge,” the official said.

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”

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, he said. These sections entail a jail sentence of up to one year and a fine of Rs 500, the official informed. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
