Chief minister Manohar Parrikar said since the origin of the SMS was from Spain, the information has been shared with the intelligence bureau and RAW for further developing intelligence in the matter.

"The details are awaited," he said, adding the district police, coastal police and crime branch have been sensitised and precautionary measures were taken by them.

The issue was raised on the floor of the House by independent legislator Vijay Sardesai.

The text message, which flashed on the cellphones of few journalists in June this year, had threatened a 'blood fiesta' in Panaji in August and 'blood carnival' in December in the coastal belt.
