Simply put

This section was also added, like the preceding one, by the Indian Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 1886. Resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension, or escape or rescue in cases not otherwise provided for have been made punishable under this section. It states that whoever, in any case not covered under sections 224 or 225 of the Indian Penal Code or in any other law in existence at the time, intentionally resists or illegally obstructs intentionally to the lawful apprehension of either himself or of any other person, or either escapes or attempts to escape from any custody in which that person is detained lawfully, shall be punished with simple or rigorous imprisonment for a term extending up to 6 months, or with fine, or with both.
