Seen this small herb en-route Guntarao at GHNP at an altitude of approx 3200m.
Could this be some Gentianaceae sp..

Yes a species of Swertia. Need to be checked for tetramerous species.

Appears close to images at Swertia tetragona (Edgew.) Clarke in Hook. f. though with some variations as per comparative images at Swertia.

On further checking, it is more closer to images at Lomatogonium carinthiacum (Wulfen) A.Braun
