FIAZULA self-confessed “monstrous and disgusting” man who raped a teaching assistant was yesterday jailed for 11 years and three months.

Bed shop owner Fiazul Islam, 31, picked up the woman as she walked home after a night out with colleagues in Keighley before raping her twice in the back of his car.

Bradford Crown Court heard he was caught by police after her mobile phone – lost during the attack – was found in his bedroom when a 15-year-old girl accused him of a separate sexual offence more than a year later. Sentencing him for two counts of rape and one of sexual activity with a child, Judge John Potter told him: “You are prepared to violate and humiliate your victims to satisfy your own wicked sexual desires.”

But despite the language barrier the school has scored highly in its Ofsted reports and the headmaster sees bilingualism as an advantage.

Christine Parker, the head, told the Sunday Times: “More and more of the world is going bilingual.

“The culture at our school is not to see bilingualism as a difficulty.”
