Dear Surajit: very nice pictures and follow up of a tree and its fruits that we do not see in urban tended gardens... 

Ek-Kodi Ghosh moshay (of Kol Bot G) writes in his book that another plant  ( Biophytum sensitvum is also called Bon-naranga...)  and also seen in Howrah and Hooghly... along roads and streets...
Knowing you, we will see it sooner or later
Be well
