"I was wearing shorts so they started shouting at me for that. I asked them if there is any rule of dress code in police station. They did not show me any rules but said this is India not America," he writes on Facebook.
The post is accompanied by two videos showing a heated exchange between Mr Desale and two officers. In the first video, a policeman at the station can be heard asking Mr Desale to follow proper dress code since women and children visit the police station.
The Kalyan resident of Mumbai's Thane district also claims he was "forcibly" removed from the station and threatened with a police case.
When asked about the video, Bala Saheb Kadam, senior police inspector told mid-day, " Our officials merely asked him to wear proper clothes while visiting the police station. Women come to the police station too, and shorts don't look good. He is an engineer; he should have better manners and know how to present himself at a police station".

However, many also criticised Mr Desale for wearing shorts to the police station.
"I don't know what action to take. I just want apology from them," says Mr Desale to NDTV. Click for more trending news
