A grieving mother has told how she clutched a scarf soaked in her son’s scarf blood as he lay dying after being stabbed in the street.

Farhad Joseph Khalili died from stab wounds near his mother’s home in South London last night.

She described soaking her scarf in the blood of her youngest son “to keep forever” as “my baby” died outside a kebab shop on Surbiton Road, Kingston.

Emergency services arrived at the scene shortly after 7pm yesterday and tried but were unable to revive the victim, who has now been named by family and friends as Farhad Joseph Khalili, aged 32, from Richmond.

His mum said she received a call from her son’s phone, but when she picked up, it was the police on the other end of the line – telling her that Farhad had been killed, reports My London.

She said she left her house and walked towards the crime scene to face the reality of what had just happened – “to see the blood”.

Farhad’s mother explained through tears: “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.”

She described seeing his feet, “white, yellow, cold”, his open mouth and kissing his forehead, adding: “I put my hand over his hand and felt how cold it was.

“Believe me, I’m not imagining that his hand was shaking and I felt him saying, ‘Mummy, I love you’.”

Farhad’s mum wanted the world to know “how hard this is for me”, “very bad and very painful”, adding: “I’ve been so upset. I haven’t slept since they told me.”

Police have since confirmed a 27-year-old man was arrested nearby on suspicion of murder.

Farhad’s mother also wished for people to know what her son was like, describing him as “the best boy ever” and someone that “everyone loved”.

She added that he was “very kind to everyone” and “helpful”.

The two had “the best relationship ever” and the heartbroken mum talked about all the times that her son had been there for her, calling her or dropping whatever he was doing to go and see her.

They also both enjoyed cooking, walking in Richmond Park and shopping.

She has bought part of his Christmas gift, a jumper and cologne – and they were planning on going out to buy the other present, some trainers, together.

Crying, Farhad’s mother told MyLondon: “I don’t want to believe my son’s dead.

“It’s too painful. And I don’t want to be comfortable – I want to feel his pain.

“I wish they’d killed me and not my son. I don’t care about myself, I just care about my son.

“I want to go and sleep and cuddle with him in the freezer where his body is every day. My other sons say we’re going to go and see him every day until he’s in the ground.

“It looks like everything, all the shops and trees, are crying and mourning my son.

“I can’t do anything. And I just want to have my son back.”
