According to PTI, the FIR was lodged based on a complaint of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Mukti Nirman Trust under section 135 of the Electricity Act, 2003, at the Krishna Nagar police station.

The Shahi Idgah mosque is locked in a legal battle with the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Mukti Nirman Trust over the mosque property.

Citing a press statement issued by the government in Lucknow, it was reported that the action was taken as part of its ongoing campaign against illegal electricity consumption in Uttar Pradesh.

A fine was also recovered from Tanveer Ahmed, the secretary of the Shahi Idgah Masjid Committee. According to the statement, the connection was cut by a joint team of Mathura district police and the Electricity department. 

In May 2022, a court in Uttar Pradesh allowed a plea for the removal of the mosque based on the claim that it was built on the land belonging to the Keshav Dev temple, believed to be the birthplace of Hindu deity Krishna. According to a few reports, a total of nine pleas had been pending at the Mathura court forwarding similar claims on the Shahi Idgah mosque.
