These apps have become quite popular in the past with people creating videos. They are spread across platforms like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. The word Nillu means 'stop' in Malayalam and hence the video makers are trying to stop vehicles while singing the song. Such incidents could result in roadblocks, the police have warned. As Kiki challenge stirred a storm on social media, different city police had issued similar warnings asking people to not attempt it in public places. Few arrests were also made in the incident with the accused being asked to make videos raising awareness against doing it.
