Police sources said an FIR has been registered against more than 50 people including some Shiv Sainiks who have been named in the report following the attack.
Also, a probe has been ordered into whether the contents of the Facebook post constituted an offence and even if the offence was registered why were the arrests made, Maharashtra Police's IG (Law and Order) Deven Bharti said.
Abdul Dhada, whose clinic was ransacked, said, "For our security they have posted the police because what has gone wrong should not happen again...We don't have any complaint against anybody and treatment we received from the police station is absolutely fine".
He said both the girls were detained on security grounds and later arrested.
"I have lost heavily, including my practice," he said, adding that local people have supported him.
To a question what he felt regarding the incident, Dr Dhada said he had faith in police and may be they acted under pressure. "We don't know the laws."
The arrests had sparked an outrage with Press Council of India chief Markandey Katju demanding "immediate" action against police personnel involved.
In an e-mail to the Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, Katju warned of "legal consequences" if he failed to take action against the police personnel concerned.
Congress said a police case against the girls was "unfortunate" and hoped Maharashtra government would take remedial measures.
Telecom and IT Minister Kapil Sibal has said he was "deeply saddened" by the arrest of the two girls and that the IT Act should not be used to "throttle dissent".
Union Minister of State for IT Milind Deora said, "There is a need for an independent inquiry into the girls' arrest".
