Many thanks Satish ji, Prashant.
Psychotria seems more probable ... calling Shrikant ji for ID.

This would be Psychotria nigra (Gaeartn.) Alst. syn P. thwaitesii
Hook. The flowers are not open to show the characteristic reddish
browwn hairs but you can see them at the base. Other features also
tally. Regards, Shrikant
