I agree with Saroj ji for Rauvolfia verticellata,
not only vegetative characters fruit also ovoid.....verticellata
Fruit globose.........serpentaiana.

With regards.

What is worrying me is the protruding style (?) and pinkish throat which I do not see in Rauvolfia verticillata (Lour.) Baill.
There is another species i.e. Rauvolfia hookeri reported from Kerala as per FoPI. 
But I do not find much material or keys to verify or otherwise. Pl. see:
https://www.gbif.org/species/3617946

Any clue?
