Provision

When an act is abetted with the intention on the part of the abettor of causing a particular effect, and an act for which the abettor is liable in consequence of the abetment, causes a different effect from that intended by the abettor, the abettor is liable for the effect caused, in the same manner and to the same extent as if he had abetted the act with the intention of causing that effect, provided he knew that the act abetted was likely to cause that effect.


Simply put

An intention to cause effect as a consequence of the abetment would hold the abettor liable for the effect caused in the same manner and to the same extent as if he/she had abetted the act with the intention of causing that effect even though the effect caused was different than that which was intended.
