The leaves are thick dark green about 8-10 cm bye 5-6 cm. appear to be opposite.
The flowers were white ...size shape approx. that of Datura.

Prashant, I was waiting for someone to pick the thread from your guess
Loganiaceae. Yes, you seem to be right once more, keep it up. How did
you guess? This is Fagraea ceilanica, this is a shrub of evergreen
forests often epiphytic on Terminalia paniculata. Regards, Shrikant
