Hi Prashant,
  They are the old fruit of Mitragyna parviflora locally called Kalamb or Lagu Kadamb.

I have never observed Mitrgyna parviflora in Pune city.
Often called as Laghu Kadamb ( लघु कदम्ब )  in Marathi.
Does anybody know of any known location of this tree in Pune? and of course what about Mumbai?
I have seen these trees at Bharatpur.

Satish ji, these are found occasionally at Sanjay Gandhi National Park (including Nagla block), as well as Tungareshwar Wildlife Sanctuary ... and at Karnala Bird Sanctuary (here it may not as common).
Regards.
