Just a suggestion.

Dicliptera candicans is not listed either in POWO or CoL. 
But it is Dicliptera or related genus only and not Justicia.

Garg Ji,
Many of the plants I have posted from Nairobi are clicked at the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi.
So they may not be native ones.
I also think Dicliptera to be the closest.
Regards,
Aarti
