Sorry ! Not available sir

Do the leaves in the background belong to it ? If so, it may be Albizia sherriffii Baker f. as per images and details herein.

Yes sir. But this tree seems large climber.

This was identified as Albizia richardiana by BSI, Shillong.

As per Flora of China,  Albizia sherriffii Baker f. is a small Tree, 6-9 m tall. It has got distribution in Bhutan (N); China (N):  Xizang Zizhiqu; Yunnan; India (N): Arunachal Pradesh; Assam; Sikkim; Myanmar (N) as per ILDIS.
While Albizia richardiana (syn. of Albizia niopoides var. niopoides) has been introduced in India from South America and is being planted as an ornamental tree here as per POWO and unlikely to be found in the wild. It is a large sized fast growing tree as per Flora of Bangladesh.
If detailed images are available, it will firmly establish the id.

I am unable to comment in absence of leaves.

Albizia myriophylla ?

The fibrous bark of this shrub or strong climber is sweetish, locally used in preparation of yeast with pounded rice.

Yes, possible as per POWOGBIF specimens- one and two and Pl@ntUse
But difficult to confirm with this image.
