London: British police investigating sex abuse allegations against the late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile say that they have recorded 199 crimes in which Savile is a suspect.

In an update on its investigation, Scotland Yard said today that 450 people have come forward with information relating to the children`s television presenter, who died last year at age 84.

Most of those people have alleged sexual abuse, and there were 31 rape allegations recorded against Savile, police said.

The majority of those who have come forward are females who said they were abused when they were young.

Allegations against Savile grew into a scandal involving the BBC, which has been accused of failing to report allegations against Savile while making shows praising him.
