To fix anything it is very obvious first we have to get inside which required a lot of force and even a screw Driver which I highly don't recommend. use any other polite way :P

Step 3: Check If Broken or Poor Solder Joint

After getting into the power bank, first thing I noticed was ports were not actually broken but fallen apart because of poor/bad solder joint.
