Dear SAIF,
We discovered an image of the face of an Indian Bark Mantis,
Humbertiella ceylonica, on Project Noah, and we believe it looks very similar to your Mantis.  This image on DeviantArt and this image on DeviantArt both support that identification.  Images on BugzUK also look similar.  We are confident that your individual is a female based on her shorter wings.
