I wouldn't punish even though that is what we might want to do but they are only children have a talk with them if that doesn't work send them to their room and have them think about what they did tell them that is inappropriate behaivor. GL

I think the child needs a good long talking to about whats appropriate. I don't think a punishment is in order. If the child was a different sex it may just be curiosity.

Punish? Probably not if it was done as common, age-appropriate curiosity. If he tried to coerce or force the other child, then yes. If that was the case, I'd probably also consider counseling since I would wonder who had taught him to use coersion or force for this.
I would certainly use this as a chance to go over privacy and safety rules again: If it's covered by underpants, it's private, situations involving older kids and playmates, "stranger danger" situations, etc.
