A man who was fatally stabbed outside a kebab shop in South West London last night ‘was filmed being stabbed to death’, according to his mother.
Farhad Joseph Khalili, 32, of Richmond died on Surbiton Road in Kingston just after 7pm on Wednesday (December 15).
Today his mother visited the scene and told MyLondon she had “picked up some of his blood” on her scarf “to keep him forever”.

Farhad’s mother cried as she claimed: “They filmed him when they killed him.
“This is very bad, this is very painful. How can they kill my son and film and enjoy that?
“They stabbed his neck a few times, his back, and heart.
She said she received a call from her son’s phone, but when she answered it was police – telling her Farhad was dead.
She then left her house and walked towards the scene “to see the blood”.

Once there, she said: “I sat down and put my hands on his blood and brought my hands to my face and kissed his blood. I put my scarf in his blood and will save it forever.
“His eyes were open and I tried to close them, but I couldn’t. I said that his eyes were open because he was looking for me and his brothers.
“I wish they’d killed me and not my son. I don’t care about myself, I just care about my son.”

The Metropolitan Police say they have arrested a man, 27, and a teenage boy on suspicion of murder, who are now in custody at separate South London police stations.
The Met’s Specialist Crime Command Detective Chief Inspector Jim Eastwood said: “This incident has left another family facing a future without a loved one due to senseless violence. It is an unimaginable loss and my thoughts are with them.
“Swift investigative actions in this case have led to two arrests and that is a positive development. However we are still in the very early stages of establishing exactly what happened on Wednesday evening.
“The public’s help could be crucial in being able to confirm the sequence of events. I would urge anyone who either witnessed the attack or has other information about what took place, to speak to us.”
Anyone with information who has not already spoken to the police should call 101 or tweet @MetCC, giving the reference 6557/15DEC.
Information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
