Thanks Johan for the perfect identification !!
The identifying feature is the coloured antennae: CMR Bean Beetle (Mylabris oculata) which comes is a few colour variants.http://www.warrenphotographic.co.uk/2327...http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/beet...http://www.beetlesofafrica.com/beetle_de...
Meloidae, Blister Beetle. Quite nasty to flowers and toxic (blisters!). Pustulatus from the link is from India. There is also a Mylabris pustula which looks similar to yours. I am not suer about the species. Take it as a hint!
