Capture and massacre
On 26 March 1990, during the First Nagorno-Karabakh War, the Armenian Armed Forces attacked and seized the village. The Armenian forces burned some 20 houses and massacred eleven Azerbaijani civilians. According to Azerbaijani sources, a 39-days-old infant was burned alive by the Armenians. The bodies of members of one family, including infants, were found in the charred ruins of their burned homes. By the time the Azerbaijani troops arrived in Bağanis Ayrum, the attackers had already fled.
The village was ultimately seized several months later.
