From the leaves it looks like this could be “Garlic mustard” , Alliaria petiolata. the crushed leaves give off a distinct garlic smell. This plant is a highly invasive weed in NE Usa; and one can also find reports of this invasive in E ghats, Himalayan foothills
I am very familiar with Alliaria petiolata as it grows all around my house. And photos I have seen here don’t look like it in any way.
the basal leaves are reminiscent of garlic mustard as it emerges for the first year, but the flowering stalk branching is not typical of garlic mustard, at least that’s how I remember …
