I wonder if it is a Heterophilus ? Have a look here.

I see only 2 species fro India in Titan database : Philus antennatus (Gyllenhal, 1817) & Philus globulicollis Thomson, 1861 but I have not them, sorry.

It is Philus globulicollis Thomson, 1861, basing on author's differential diagnosis (here: p. 298).
P. antennatus shows a more conical pronotum.
