To some extent it looks like T.arjuna. You may like to do the following to confirm the id:
1. Pl look for fallen fruits (5-winged/angled) and leaves (simple, unlobed, oblong-lanceolate...), and share the pictures here.
2. make a slight cut in the bark to observe fleshy pinkish red inner bark.
3. observe the habitat. T.arjuna usually grows near watercourses.
4. try to record the local name & use of the tree.

Would like to add one more characteristic to the above :  two glands on each side can be seen at the back of the leaf on the leaf stalk. This is very characteristic of Terminalia arjuna.
 
regards,
Rashida.

The presence of one/two gland/s on the base of the back side of leaves
are characteristics of most of the species of Terminalia.

The tree in the picture could be mostly T. arjuna.
By the way, do you have a close up of the leaf of this plant? What was
the vegetation type? Evergreen or Deciduous?

Regards,
Giby

My dear Giby and Vijay
Those reddish bark and branching patterns do not point towards
arjuna...

Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise please.

Some earlier relevant feedback:
