Answer

Hey finally i can able to find the route-cause and able to run the react native android app on windows machine. For my case while build the application, dependencies are getting downloaded from "https". If still anyone struggling on this issue find the below steps to resolve it,

Some Gradle files are missing So,

  1. Removed the .gradle directory (C:/Users/****/.gradle)

Modified secure to non-secure connection,

  1. Under application folder open the "android/build.gradle" file Comment the //jcenter() from buildscript

It should be look like this,

buildscript {
    repositories {
        //jcenter()
        jcenter { url "http://jcenter.bintray.com/" }
    }
