Don’t think it is Prunus. Clear image of leaf would have helped.
First thing came to mind was Deeringia amaranthoides, which it is not. May be something from Amaranthaceae ?
This too looks similar
Leaves look different from images at
Viburnum sp? Possibly V. foetidum.
Thanks, … You seems to have directed us in the right way.
To me also appears close to Viburnum foetidum as per
Flora of China, FOC illustration, GBIF, Flowers of India
