Dear Dr. Phadke,

Here are the  leaf photographs ...

The leaves are opposite, mango shaped, approx 4cms length, soft, smooth surface. I think this plant is a climber

Many thanks for this flower Identification. 

// From ITP database, 

Yes, the ID is correct but the name is now changed to Commicarpus
chinensis.
