Allium ??

Not Allium

Sorry …, it is Allium sp.

OK …

Seems a type of Allium sp.

What are the species of Allium reported from the area?
Is there any clear picture of the inflorescence?

For me it seems to be Allium victorialis

Yes, possible as per GBIF specimens- one and two and as per POWOFoP & FoC illustrations.
