Alpinia is from Zingiberaceae ....
Can the family have such fruits and the fruits are attached to woody stem
I don't think ginger family can have such characters.

I have one problem with this identification. These fruits seem to have been developed from a superior ovary whereas Alpinia fruits developing from an inferior ovary would have large scar at the tip. This is also clear from your link and other species of the genus:
