The 16-year-old boy, who was sent to the observation home in Noida on Saturday after he confessed to have killed his mother and sister, did not talk much about the incident, said the official who counselled him at the juvenile care home.

The boy said he did it in a fit of rage, without realising the consequences of his action, the official said quoting the boy.

After two days of the incident, he started missing his family and later called up his father. He said he was confused and could not tell his father about his whereabouts, the observation home official said, quoting his conversations with the accused juvenile.

The counsellor quoted boy saying, “Maine galat kiya lekin tab pata hi nahi chala. Maine socha bhi tha kood jaoon.”

The counsellor hinted that the boy had developed resentment against his mother at a very young age and shared a closer bond with his grandfather. Police had brought the boy to observation home around 5.30pm, where his father and other relatives were present.

Before entering the home, the boy hugged his father and went in without talking to him.

An official said that in view of the gravity of the incident, the boy has been put in solitary confinement. “He is remorseful, but he is still angry. He will have to be in solitary confinement for four days at least. The boy is not ready to share the details and we do not want to make him uncomfortable by broaching the subject at this stage,” the counsellor said.

The first counselling session took place at 10pm on Saturday which lasted for one hour. He slept at 11pm and woke up at 7am.

“At 9am on Sunday, we had the second round of counselling in which he looked a little comfortable. He was given a haircut and later some story books. The observation home is all about changing the mental make up of a juvenile,” the counsellor added.

The boy followed the directions by the officials.He ate dal, roti, rice, paneer on Saturday night and had milk and aloo-poori on Sunday morning for breakfast. He can meet his parents once a week on Thursday.
