Sounds like it might be physically damaged and will have to be replaced.

I interpreted what you said was you pulled on the cable instead of the connector.
You could borrow a spare cable and try that. If you don't have a friend with a Lightning device, you could take iPad and cable to a Genius at an Apple Store for them to test.

Although it is possible for a disconnected disk volume to be corrupted by disconnecting it at the wrong time, or even remotely possible for it to corrupt another volume, it seems quite unlikely that it would affect the ability of the laptop to charge the iPad or the ability of the iPad to take a charge.
If your friend's cable does work for you, I suggest you just get a replacement. If not, you need to determine if the problem is on the iPad side or the laptop side. Read on.
On the iPad side, try restarting or resetting it. Instructions are available at the following Apple support page:
You could also try restoring it with iTunes, also described on the same page.
On the laptop side, I assume you have already tried using other USB ports. Have you determined if the USB ports can power other devices? Have you tried powering it off entirely and rebooting?

It worked fine with my friend's cable. So now replacement.
