      As per sec 83 of IPC 83. Act of a child above seven and under twelve of immature understanding.—Nothing is an offence which is done by a child above seven years of age and under twelve, who has not attained sufficient maturity of understanding to judge of the nature and consequences of his conduct on that occasion.
      Since, the child does not has a maturity level to understand the nature and consequences of the actions, there are high chances of the child repeating his actions.
      So, the child can be sent for counselling sessions to make him more aware of not performing those actions again and also make sure that the child is well attending the counselling sessions and responding well to the same.
