…, Botanist from Garden, told me the name of this plant but somehow I forgot. He also added this plant species is highly medicinal.  


sorry cant tell you what it is but this poor thing itself seems to be infected or deficient in some minerals..
the leaf does not look healthy…
if it was in my garden I would worry and have it looked at…


Ohhh….finally the puzzle of my mind got solved….Thanks to … I have written earlier it is endemic but its not.  

It is Zanthoxylum acanthopodium DC. (Rutaceae) an evergreen shrub occurring from Northern India and the Tibetan highlands across to Eastern and Southeast Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia). It is found at altitudes of c. 1000 to 2500 m or even higher than 3000 m. 

Thank you … for your efforts.
It may be faceing deficiency of some minerals but dosent matter finally got the proper ID.
