Starr has denied involvement in sexual abuse and had previously volunteered to speak to detectives. He has been accused by a woman who has also publicly claimed that she was abused by Savile, who died last year at age 84.
Police earlier arrested and questioned former glam rock star Gary Glitter in Savile investigation.
