Interesting plant with five fused carpels, fimbriate stigmas, free five (?) petals and sepals. fruit appears to be fleshy. Any guesses about the family for further progress?

Infact, this shrub is called Masuri Berry, and according to one view,
Mussoorie town got its name from the abundance of this shrub.

Thanks a lot Amit ji and Tabish. Frankly never knew this plant. Have visited Mussoorie number of times but then I neither had a Digital camera, nor was the member of indiantreepix.
