Man, 20, charged with murdering aspiring lawyer Sven Badzak who was ‘chased and knifed to death’


A MAN has today been charged with murdering an aspiring lawyer as he popped out to buy orange juice for his mum.

Sven Badzak was allegedly chased down and stabbed in Kilburn, North London, on February 6.

Sven Badzak was stabbed to death in Kilburn last month

The 22-year-old, who went to the same school as Prince William and Harry, died from multiple knife wounds.

Rashid Gedel, 20, has now been charged with murder and is due to appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court today.

He is also charged with the attempted murder of Sven’s 16-year-old pal.

Sven had only popped out to buy his mum orange juice and a salmon bagel when he was attacked.

He was knifed after he fell to the ground, while his pal sought help in a local Tesco.

He remains in a stable condition in hospital after also being stabbed.

Detectives believe the victims did not know the attackers and there is nothing to suggest it was robbery.

Sven’s heartbroken mum Jasna, 49, said her son, who studied sociology at the University of Roehampton, wanted to be a lawyer and had nothing to do with gangs.

She told HOAR: “He went out to get me orange juice and a bagel on Saturday evening . . .  and that was the last time I saw my boy.”

Four people arrested, aged 17 to 20, over Sven’s death are currently on police bail.
