      When an act done by several persons in furtherance of common intention then are each
      of them liable?
      Section 34 of IPC reads as, "Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention:-
      When a criminal act is done by several persons in furtherance of the common intention of all,
      each of such persons is liable for that act in the same manner as if it were done by him alone".
      The word 'Common Intention' means unity of purpose or meeting of minds or evil intent to
      commit a criminal act.
      According to section 34 of IPC, it actually means that if two or more persons are intentionally
      involved in doing a criminal act jointly, the liability is just the same as if each of them has done

      it individually. When a criminal act is done in furtherance of Common Intention of the person
      who join in committing the crime, each one of them will be liable under section 34 of IPC.
