Devout Muslim father who served time for raping a schoolgirl savagely beat his 17-year-old daughter and her boyfriend with a hammer

A devout Muslim father who served time for raping a schoolgirl has been jailed for savagely beating his 17-year-old daughter and her secret boyfriend.

Businessman Soruth Ali, 42, was woken up at 5am by noises coming from the bedroom of his second eldest’s room and walked in to find her and lover James Martin in bed together.

The restaurant boss, described as controlling and very religious, went into a rage – grabbing a hammer and hitting Mr Martin over the head before chasing out of his family home in Leigh, Greater Manchester.
