Two illegal immigrants who assaulted a woman walking home from a nightclub came off worse after she used her karate skills to beat them up.
The pair were jailed for six years after they were found guilty of following 29-year-old Kelly Soutar. The brave victim has spoken of her ‘complete relief’ after the pair were jailed for a six years.
Ms Soutar, 29, described how Shehab Smekramuddin and Mohammad Islam – both illegal immigrants who claim to be ‘political refugees’ – followed her from a club in Forfar, Scotland, before they struck.
Ms Soutar, who works as a welder and who has a brown belt in karate – said her self-defence training kicked in allowing her to punch, headbutt and kick the duo before making off.
The court jailed the pair for three years each – and they now face deportation to their native Bangladesh when their sentences expire.
