The duty officer at the police station was heard telling Shinde he should have let the car pass and noted down its licence plate number.
Bangur Nagar Police recorded statements of Shinde, the scriptwriter and witnesses. The scriptwriter told police Shinde abused his female friend and damaged his car.
A little later, senior police inspector (traffic) Ravindra Patil arrived at the police station and was seen scolding Shinde.
Patil was heard instructing him to leave without registering complaint.
Shinde, who allegedly suffered nail scratches, cried: "I do not want to continue like this in the profession. If this is how I am treated, I will quit."
Inspector Ramesh Mede of Bangur Nagar Police Station said, "We are ready to register a case. However, the victim does not want to lodge a complaint. We have recorded statements of the driver and witnesses."
Brijesh Singh, additional commissioner of police (traffic), said he had asked a DCP to conduct an inquiry.
If it is found the police officer was assaulted, a case will be registered, he said.
"Mumbai Police Commissioner has ordered strict action against anyone who assaults police personnel. If the incident has occurred, we will make sure a complaint is lodged and the culprit will be dealt with strictly," said Singh.
