The Iranian Instagram model, who shared her spooky photographs resembling Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie, has been arrested on charges of blasphemy, the media reported.
SaharTabar was arrested over charges of “cultural crimes and social and moral corruption”, reports The National, quoting semi-official Tasnim news agency.
She transformed her appearance through cosmetic surgery, which then resembled a spooky version of Jolie and was shared on Facebook-owned Instagram.
“She faces charges including blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption,” the report added.
Instagram is the only social media platform authorized in Iran, while all other popular sites such as Facebook and Twitter are banned.
She became popular on Instagram last year after sharing a series of images of her face that had been changed by plastic surgery.
In some images, “she is wearing a hijab over her hair and a white bandage on her nose, commonly seen on Tehran’s streets”.
