Simply put

This section deals with the law of homicide by causing death of person other than the person whose death was intended to be caused. It says that if a person, by doing something about which he has intention or knowledge to be likely to cause death, commits culpable homicide by causing the death of any person whose death he has no intention to cause or he does know that his death is likely to be caused, the culpable homicide committed by the offender is amounting to murder or not amounting to murder as it would have been if he had caused the death of the person whose death he had intention to cause or whose death he had knowledge to be likely to cause.
