    One example:
    Supposing something was stolen from a room and Mr. A were to say that Mr.X was acting suspiciously in that room at that time, Mr. A is implying that Mr. X may be invoved in the stealing. Mr.X may be innocent and not involved in the stealing but his implication, if any, in the crime will come under investigation.

    'Implication', especially in the plural, is also used for things that flow from a decision, etc. In the new, you'll hear people talking about the implications of a new law, meaning the effect it will have.
