I think Solanum indicum. Flowers and fruits are not there, not sure
but Photogenic Image is saying that this is S.indicum.

Name Solanum indicum is no longer valid./ Indian specimens are referable to either S. anguivi (flowers white with purple veins, flowers numerous) or S. violaceum (flowers blue-purple, fls lesser). This one should be S. violaceum
