The entire village was displaced in 1990 when Sri Lanka's security forces launched a military operation in the area. They were given shelter in the Clappenburg refugee camp.

Resettlement started in 1996.

Students who have passed the Year 5 Scholarship examination are eligible to get admission in leading schools in the island, according to education sources.
