Avni Zherka is from Đakovica. Before the war, he lived with his son Kastriot (30) and other members of his family in a family house in the settlement of Čabrat. On May 7th, they wanted to leave the town with a group of people from the neighbourhood. The police stopped them at the Talić Bridge; they separated Kastriot together with several other men from the others, and ordered the rest of them to continue their journey. It was only in 2004 that Avni found out that his son had been killed and his body found in Batajnica.
