Dont know the binomial name...
but your photos show what is known as
'Shobuj tok dhedosh ' in bengali...
ie green sour bhindi....

once in a while one old woman even sells it in my supermarket..

Trying to discover its name I had found this, last year ...
" from wikipedia: English: A wild white Roselle plant growing
on the bank of Irrawaddy River near Kamma, Magway Division, Myanmar.
Date 30 March 2008 Source Own work Author Mgba,
his photograph is at this link:
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_Wild_Roselle_Plant_Growing_On_the_Bank_of_Irrawaddy_River_Myanmar.jpg"

his picture is exactly like yours...
and Mr garg's pictures of leaves ...couldn't tell, but his gree n
bhindi
fruits are uncannily like yours...

DID YOU TASTE THEM? ARE THEY SOUR or SOURISH?

USha di

Thanks Balkar ji, for the nice pictures.
But your plant looks different, and it may be Fioria vitifolia (= Hibiscus vitifolius).
