On March 25, 1971, the Pakistani invaders led by Rajjab Ali Fakir, the notorious Razakar commander of Bagerhat, entered the village of Damerkh in the Sundarbans Union of Mongla. At that time the Razakar forces carried out extensive operations in the Hindu inhabited areas of Damerkh, Dhalirkhand, Digraj, Nitakhali, Moukhali, Duttermeth and Kachubunia. About 400/500 innocent people of the area were massacred by the Razakars. The women of the family were kept in the Razakar camp and tortured. The 33 victims of the genocide were buried together.
