Looks like an Epilobium sp.  

Thanks ...,
It matches Epilobium genus but I can't find any species matching.
Any idea of species sir?
Pl. check with species available in efi site so far.

..., I have checked species available in efi but I can't find any species matching as Epilobium hirsutum is only species with height more than 6 feet but plant don't appears to me so much hairy with some difference in flowers also. I am sharing some more images to confirm.
Experts help is requested to confirm species.

I think it's Epilobium parviflorum though it's height is nearly 7 feet long, here are some more images with opened flowers to confirm. 
3 images
After pursuing, illustrations, images and keys, I think I feel these are more closer to images at Epilobium hirsutum rather than those at Epilobium parviflorum, as per
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=111844
Flora of Pakistan further says:
A very common plant throughout much of Eurasia in disturbed places. This species varies greatly in amount and type of vestiture. Further study is needed to determine the proper status of glabrous plants from the western Himalaya sometimes segregated as E. hirsutum var. laetum C.B. Clarke. Fl. Per.: Jun-Sep. Fr. Per.: Jul-Sep; Distribution: Temperate and montane Eurasia and Africa; common in temperate Pakistan and throughout the Himalayan region; adventive in North America.

Yes ..., I agree with you that it looks much closer to Epilobium hirsutum.

This is from Prini Village near Manali.

Location: Prini Village near Manali
Habitat: Wild
I think Epilobium cylindricum 

i am quite sure of this plant being Epilobium cylindricum

My first thought was, this could be an epilobium. The fruit of
Epilobium cylindricum agree with these pictures quite well. However, now I am confused. The stigma of Epilobium cylindricum is spherical or club-shaped, never lobed, as is prominently visible in ... pictures. Or is there some mixup with stamens?!

I really admire your keen observation power.
You are right, Epilobium parviflorum could be a possibility, but have to see leaves clearly.

I had initially identified it as Epilobium cylindricum but after ... pointed out four-lobed stigma, it can't be that species.
Now I think it to be E. parviflorum, but only leaves will confirm.
Your views please.

Should be Epilobium parviflorum
After pursuing, illustrations, images and keys, I think I feel these are more closer to images at Epilobium hirsutum rather than those at Epilobium parviflorum, as per

Habitat: along path on mountain slope
Habit: herb (not sure of the height),
flower 12 - 18 mm across (not sure)
I think closer to images and details at Epilobium hirsutum L.
