Abelia x grandiflora
This was at Srinagar on the Char Chinar island in August 2022.
I had recently recently seen it (for the first time) in Paris 2 months ago and was identified on this group and saw it again in Srinagar.

Yes Abelia grandiflora, commonly planted hedge in Kashmir

Was in Srinagar for only half a day and therefore had no chance to see and enjoy the floral wealth.
Travelled further on to Ladakh and will be posting some flowers for ID over the coming days.

I also agree with the id.

Abelias are widely used as hedge plants (as observed in Palo Alto and San Francisco etc., in USA during my stay there).
