Id pl of the plant- I have photos of only a leaf and its fruit which are sent for id.
May be a Lauraceae.
Fruits resemble on of the Cordia species. But the leaves look different. Any how pl check all other details.
Possibly it is a member of Vitex sp. of Verbenaceae.
Might be verbenaceae.
Looks like Vitaceae member
Looks like Styrax sp. (Styracaceae) to me. Not sure though!!
If the leaves are compound then chances are very high for Vitex of Verbenaceae. I came across a similar plant in Nokrek (Meghalaya) which was identified as Vitex quinata. Some other species of Vitex are also reported from Meghalaya. But for confirmation need further detailed study.
