Sahar Tabar, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, is a 22-year-old who has been convicted by the Iranian government for blasphemy, insulting the Islamic veil, inciting violence, encouraging youths into corruption and more.

She was detained on the orders of Tehran's guidance court, which deals with '"cultural crimes and social and moral corruption".

Known on Instagram as Sahar Tabar, she is now lodged in an Iranian prison after she was arrested for social media activity as part of Iran's crackdown on Instagram stars. However, Center For Human Rights In Iran, a USA -based human rights group, said Presiding Judge Mohammad Moghiseh of Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court, has repeatedly refused to grant her bail.

"We find it unacceptable that this young woman has caught the coronavirus in these circumstances while his term of detention was prolonged during all this time in prison", said Wednesday the organization with the organization of defense of human rights Payam Derafshan.

Derafshan added that authorities have even tried to deny that Tabar has caught the coronavirus.

Derafshan rejected this statement, arguing that there was "no sense to deny this" and insisting that "the prison director should acknowledge the infection".

Iran released approximately 85,000 prisoners last month in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Sahar Tabar was initially famous for having been 50 plastic surgeries, which gave her the startling Angelina Jolie/zombie-look.

Others labelled her as a "zombie", "ghost" and "corpse bride".

Interestingly, jail officials in Tehran where Fatemah is kept has denied the news of her illness.

The claims about her health condition were made by a human rights group in Iran.

She is now said to be on a ventilator and under medical care in the country, which has so far recorded at least 77,995 cases of the virus, with 4,869 deaths. Reports say that she became infected in prison, where she is on charges for blasphemous and violent activities on Instagram.

Later however, she revealed that her gaunt face and inflated lips had been doctored through the work of skillful photo-editing. Cosmetic surgeries are widely popular in the country with tens of thousands of people undergoing surgery every year. It is a way of expressing yourself, a kind of art, ' said Sahar. "My fans know that this is not my real face".

Ms Khishvand made worldwide headlines in 2017 when her heavily edited Instagram photos went viral and she joined a long list of online Iranian influencers who have fallen foul of the law.

Instagram is the only major global social media service accessible in Iran, which has banned Facebook, Twitter, and the Telegram messenger service.
