This could perhaps be the leaves of  Terminalia arjuna .

Though you have written that it is not......I still think this can be 'Kusum tree' Schleichera oleosa. The leaves seen here appear to be compound with 6 leaflets rather than subopposite simple like that in Terminalia arjuna.
If you have more clearer pictures including leaf base ; please send them for confirmation.

Hi,
 This is also Kusum [Schleichera oleosa]. Was away for a week birdwatching in the South Garo Hills, Meghalaya - saw the tree there also.
