SINGAPORE : Police have arrested a 19-year-old in connection with an SMS hoax suggesting a terrorist attack in the Bugis area in downtown Singapore.

Police said that since Friday night, a text message was being circulated around Singapore about a possible terrorist attack in the busy Bugis area.

Several callers to Channel NewsAsia also said they had received the SMS.

Although there was no credible evidence of such an attack, Police said they still took the necessary precautions to enhance security in the area.

Police assure the public there is no cause for alarm as investigations showed the SMS was unsubstantiated.

But it is also giving a stern warning to those who perpetuate such hoaxes, adding that they will not hesitate to take action against them. - CNA/ms
