Of course this is a Robberfly from family Asilidae..Beyond that not been able to establish the exact species.

Taken handheld under cloudy and canopy conditions early morning. Applied noise reduction to take out high ISO background noise.

Hello Himanshu,
Missed some of your shots. This one is very well composed and the Robberfly beautifully taken on this grassblade ornated with some raindrops. Well chosen diagonal composition and fine green all over-colour.
Thanks a lot
