Its a Glochidion sphaerogynum Kurz
Its also recorded from the Tirap area


A reply from another thread:
The link provided by … leads on to another image posted by … in 2010. There we have low resolution image of another Glochidion species having multilocular capsular fruits as found in G. lanceolarium, G. coccineum and G. multiloculare. The characters of the styles are not clear nor do we have the size of the fruits.  The characters of the leaves are also not clear.  In view of this, I am unable to suggest a definite identity of this image.
