To some extent it looks like T.arjuna. You may like to do the following to confirm the id:
The presence of one/two gland/s on the base of the back side of leaves are characteristics of most of the species of Terminalia.
The tree in the picture could be mostly T. arjuna.
Those reddish bark and branching patterns do not point towards arjuna…
Please also give some photos of clear leaves, flowers and fruit.

Please find photos of …. a tree found in Kolkata. All photos were taken in the month of April 2015.
There is a good probability of this tree to be Terminalia arjuna (Roxb. ex DC.) Wight & Arn., but the id is not guaranteed.
Is it the larval host plant of monkey-puzzle butterfly? Or you just happened to see the butterfly resting on it?
