Striga angustifolia, perhaps.

This should be either Striga angustifolia, as Vijayasankar says, or
Striga densiflora. From the pictures, I am not able to decide which of
the two species it is. Leaves are linear in both.

Shorter bracts and three distinct nerves below each calyx lobes (total 5 x 3 = 15) suggests S. angustifolia. The bracts are longer than calyx and total 5 nerves in S. densiflora. I am attaching cropped and enlarged image.
