Please help with id of this shrub species.

Likely to be Flacourtia indica
efi page on Flacourtia indica
Flacourtia indica has red fruits? I doubt this to be a some Maytenus sp.
I also think it is Flacourtia indica.
Could be Scolopia crenata (Wight & Arn.) Clos – Flacourtiaceae
If petals are present then Scolopia, if absent then Flacourtia. The characters of the leaves suggest Flacourtia and if so then F. indica. This is however a suggestion only.
… tells that this is not Flacourtia but Scolopia.
Closest I can guess is Flacourtia indica (Burm.f.) Merr. FoPI
