Thanks, Dinesh ji.
Taxonomy of Rubus is very confusing.
I could not find any refrence on net (in books (old or new) or in efloras or in any good reliable source) for Rubus indicus Thunb.
This is really surprising.
As per JSTOR,  Holotype of Rubus indicus Thunb. is stored under Rubus lasiocarpus Sm. = Rubus niveus Thunb.
 
Further there are three different Rubus indicus to confuse the matter as per The Plant List.

Thanks Garg ji for the observations.
The ID is based on placard in the National Park. It says nothing about the author.
India Biodiversity Portal mentions Thunb.
I hope someone throws light and validates the author citation.

Regards.

I find as many as 12 species of Rubus in Edible Wild plants of The Himalayas by R L Badhwar and Dr R R Fernandez .
In that book there is an image of Rubus moluccanus which is similar to the images sent by Dinesh ji.I have seen this
 plant At Tezpur and I found the same plant at Cooch Behar.In the book I am referring there is no mention of Rubus indicus.
May be that book is of 1964 vintage, and there are lots of change since then.

Thanks Garg ji and Bimal ji.
As per India Biodiversity Portal the distribution of this plant is Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Thus there is possibility it may not be listed in Edible Wild plants of The Himalayas. Let us wait for more comments.
Regards.

Thank you Bimal ji and Garg ji.
It will be of great help if someone validates the synonymy of Rubus indicus and Rubus moluccanus.
Regards.
