Thanks all of you, so far still researching on the ID, so far I am thinking on Lyssomanes sp, just like Raiyan Ahmed suggest .

Thsi might belong to the sub-family Lyssomaninae.. I'm not fully sure but it looks quite close. Anterior median eyes are one of the features of Jumping spiders (Salticidae). Therefore its easy to identify them as Salties. But this family is so large (About 5000 sp.) that it sometimes become hard to identify a particular one with few references. A great catch anyways.. :-)
