The Sheberghan Prison is a prison in northern Afghanistan. Following the battle of Qali-Jangi in Mazari Sharif General Dostum sent many of the surviving captives to Sheberghan Prison.[1]

He is reported to have sent them in industrial shipping containers.[1] Conditions in the shipping containers are reported to have been extremely crowded, and that many of the captives died in transit. When the captives complained that they were suffocating General Dostum's troops are reported to have fired directly into the shipping containers, killing some of the men, but providing limited ventilation for the others.
