First, collect CCTV footage immediately under RTI and this is a lesson why no reputed, educated never steps into a police station and always prefer filing complaint online or through post or through kiosks established for such purpose.. Entrust the case to an honest advocate as we can not believe everyone, as clients complaining against police or very rare and advocates need police help every day. File this as a complaint/grievance to the IG of Police and Home Minister. Also, file such complaints before HRC online.

It is a criminal offence either to record a statement or to take photograph of a person without his/her permission. If you wanted to record the conversation you should have first asked the lady police officer's permission, explaining your reason for it, and recorded the permission and then and only then you should have recorded the conversation.

Firstly i would like to clarify that you have done no wrong in this situation. Your actions were all understandable and necessary as per the situation and in no way broke the law.
However, the police officer on the other hand broke several law, all of which you can take strict action against, which would include:
1. Failing to take an FIR -
You may approach the local magistrate in accordance with CRPC 156 (3) 1973 if you are unable to file a FIR at a police station. A magistrate has the authority to direct the investigation under this clause.
A magistrate has the authority to take notice of the complaint and order the police to look into the matter and provide a report. If a case is discovered, the magistrate may instruct the police station supervisor to file a FIR and conduct a thorough investigation.
As the police officer declined to file a FIR, a complaint may be filed to the Superintendent of Police or the Commissioner of Police. These officers may then conduct their own investigation or instruct an officer under their command to do so. The available remedy is to go before a Judicial Magistrate of First Class if neither they nor a subordinate officer are instructed to conduct an investigation.
2. You can file a claim for an unjustified or wrongful arrest.
Additionally, because you were detained for a certain period of time, you are also qualified to file a false imprisonment compensation claim.
Our human rights are priceless and ought to be protected in every situation, especially by law enforcement personnel.
The human rights attorneys at DPP Law can assist you if you feel that your rights have been violated at any time during a contact with police. They will carefully consider what you say and put up a lot of effort to develop a compelling case that could lead to your receiving compensation.
Only if the court determines that it is "essential to offer just satisfaction" will you be successful in your attempt to recover damages as a result of a human rights violation. Depending on the specifics of the breach, the amount will vary.
