Satish ji
I think there is some confusion concerning the identity of S. anguivi. Perhaps these links should help as S. anguivi is supposed to have many flowered infl, smaller flowers and fruits in clusters:

I think this should be Slanum violaceum

The plants originally placed in Solanum indicum especially in Indian context are now recognised as at least two distinct species:

Solanum anguiviLeaves elliptic-ovate with 2-4 pairs of lobes, base oblique; flowers in raceme-like cyme, 5-20-fld; corolla 6-12 mm across; white with occasional purple veins on outer surface; berry subglobose, 7-18 mm green or white when young, red when ripe, in clusters of up to 20 fruits.......refer to eFl Pakistan

Solanum violaceum: Leaves sinuate to pinnately lobed, stellately pubescent, densely beneath, unequal at base, nerves with almost straight prickles on both surfaces; corolla blue-purple, 2-2.5 cm across; berry globose, orange, 1 cm across. ....refer to Flora of Ceylone vol. 6 page 378.

Yazdy ji
The fruit size in both species is more or less same, as these plants were earlier all identified under Solanum indicum. Only recently it was recognized that name Solanum indicum is not correct and we have at least two species in India, keyed by me. I am making the change in key:

It is typing mistake on my part, 8-10 mm should be the right size

There may be some mistake in the berry size of Solanum anguivi. 7 mm
may be ok but 18 mm in size seems to be incorrect. Last year there was
a discussion on this, when I had submitted pictures of the plant,
flowers and berries.
I agree with you, the picture in question here may not be S anguivi as
the colour of the leaves is different. The size of the fruit however
looks like S. anguivi.
Regards
Yazdy.
