I'm curious to find out what kind of beetle this is. Google lens search suggested a type of longhorn beetle, but I am not convinced.

The photo is taken in Karnataka, in India

Thanks!! enter image description here

This is a beetle from the family of the "longhorned beetles", since you found this beetle in India, I think this is Acanthophorus serraticornis

See the images for comparision (from here and here):

There is not much information online, but some can be found here and especially here in this scientific article. The larvae of this beetles are considered a pest, as the bore into wood.
