If an offence is committed by any member of an unlawful assembly in prosecution of the common object of that assembly, or such as the members of that assembly knew to be likely to be committed in prosecution of that object, every person who, at the time of the committing of that offence, is a member of the same assembly, is guilty of that offence.

Simply Put

If any member of the unlawful assembly commits an offence or knows that such offence was likely committed in pursuance of their common object then every member who was a member of the assembly at the time when offence was committed will be held guilty for that offence.
