Your delete_challenge method is currently deleting the Challenge variable. You need to call the delete_instance method on the model class in order to delete the database entry. Also, change the name of your parameter "Challenge" to something else to avoid confusion. Try using Challenge.delete_instance(parameter_name).

i got it it should be

Challenge.delete_instance(parameter_name)

thanks it worked for me
