Hi Rashida,
  The photographs are not very clear but I would go with Cansjera rheedii - a scandent shrub. The 'thorns' you refer to are blunt branches that appear like thorns.  
                           Regards,
                             Neil.

Hi friends,
 
This climber was photographed on 25 June '09  at the south end of the national park in Mumbai. Request ID please. The climber also had thorns not very visible in the pic. Thanks.
 
regards,
Rashida.

Thanks Neil for the validation.  with regards to the  thorns I had mentioned earlier actually they are stout spines which I clearly saw and also got a prick  with the pics taken on 25 June '09. Just to validate that I googled and in the Flora of Hyderabad by M. Sharfuddin Khan it is mentioned about Cansjera rheedii as "... a large pretty evergreen climbing shrub, armed with scattered stout spines....".  This also explains why we did not see the spines in the pics taken today.
 
regards,
Rashida.
