Provision

Whoever wrongfully confines any person in such manner as to indicate an intention that the confinement of such person may not be known to any person interested in the person so confined, or to any public servant, or that the place of such confinement may not be known to or discovered by any such person or public servant as hereinbefore mentioned, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years in addition to any other punishment to which he may be liable for such wrongful confinement.


Simply put

Wrongful confinement in secret has been made punishable under this section. The section states that whoever wrongfully confines any person in such a manner as shows an intention on his part that no one interested in him may know that he is being confined, or any public servant may not know that he is being confined, or such abovementioned person or public servant may not know or discover the place of such confinement, shall be punished with simple or rigorous imprisonment for a term extending up to 2 years, and this period will be in addition to any other punishment to which he may be liable for such wrongful confinement. The last part of this section too, like that of the preceding section, makes the offence under this section quite serious
