London, Oct 26 (ANI): A cab driver in Britain, convicted of sex attacks, has officially been named as UK's worst sex predator with at least 102 victims having been attacked by him.
John Worboys, 53, was convicted in March 2009 of sex attacks on 12 girls who he lured into his black London taxi, by offering them a glass of bubbly on the pretext of celebrating a Lotto or casino win.The drinks were spiked with a powerful "date rape" drug to knock them out.
Worboys of Rotherhithe, South East London, was already suspected of 83 attacks, including the 12 he was charged with between 2002 and 2008.
But detectives think the 102 figure, which makes him the UK's most prolific known sex beast, is the "tip of an iceberg", as they believe he carried out 200 rapes, sex assaults or attempts to drug women passengers.
Scotland Yard was slammed over its handling of the Worboys case after more than 30 girls were attacked after cops arrested him in 2007 then freed him on bail.
It has also emerged that 90 of the women he attacked will never get justice.
"There is a high possibility there are more victims out there," the Sun quoted a police spokesman, who confirmed the 102 figure, as saying.
"The difficulty is that a large number of the women do not know whether they were raped or not.
"The only person who knows is Worboys himself. We hope he might consider telling us in the future what went on," he stated.
Worboys was jailed indefinitely, with a minimum of eight years before he can be considered for release. (ANI)
