According to these media reports, the police officers were in the north "to assist the investigation into the murder of an EULEX staff member."
Vulin, who is minister without portfolio in charge of Kosovo, told reporters in Kosovska Mitrovica that if the reports were true, "the murder case would be solved and perpetrators found."
"It is not true, and I call on the public to believe less in what the Priština press says and to trust more their own country and government,” said the Serbian minister.
The daily Koha Ditore said on Monday that "about 150 Serbian policemen have arrived to assist the investigation into the murder of the EULEX customs officer."
The 35-year-old Lithuanian Audrius Senavicius was killed in a terrorist attack near the town of Zvečan in northern Kosovo on September 19, when two EULEX vehicles carrying six staff members came under fire while on patrol in the area.
Three other EULEX staff members were wounded in the attack and the perpetrators, whose identity is unknown, are still at large.
