Whenever an act, which is criminal only by reason of its being done with a criminal knowledge or intention, is done by several persons, each of such persons who joins in the act with such knowledge or intention is liable for the act in the same manner as if the act were done by him alone with that knowledge or intention.

Simply Put

This section can also be called as Joint Liability, it means if an act (criminal) is done with the intention or knowledge which is criminal, all the person will be charged as such as if one person would have done the act.
