Wanted to share and get the id validated for this fairly large tree, shot from road to Siliguri from Darjeeling on a river bank.

Please help me to identify the flower given in the attachment.

Thanks, … When and where was it clicked? 

Thank you for your kind reply. 
The fruit bears many seeds, long fibers and the seeds are dispersed with the help of fiber when the fruit dehisces. 
Medium sized tree.
Flowering time-May- June.
Captured- Karimganj district of Assam. 

Just a vague guess (on seeing the central structure) … some species of Wrightia ?

Thanks, …, for the initial Id.
I think it should be Wrightia coccinea

Yes, should be Wrightia coccinea….!!
