This has  been  reported from many places in Kerala :  http://keralaplants.in/keralaplantsdetails.aspx?id=Wrightia_arborea '
I have seen this in Wayanadu  in  vegetative condition   a few years back during my trip to Wayanadu..

Dear Saroj ji,
Thank you very much for ID my plant.  Yes, it is very close to Wrightia arborea.  However, I observed some differences such as central purplish flower ring is spaceless or continuous, having whitish latex and fruit's bottom is clearly obtuse.  With kind regards, Sam.

Thank you
