Perhaps some more photographs should help. The leaves suggest some Sisymbrium, but vaguely seen appressed fruits suggest Brassica nigra.

Dear all, 
I am resurfacing this post for further clarification with more pictures. This (weed) herb grows to a height of 2 - 3 feet and I observed in street sides of Ooty town. Capsules were of 1 -1.5 cm long.
