Bostan belonged to the subtribe of Kakar (panezai). Haroon Panezai resisted the British occupation and the British later made a pact with Haroon Panezai. Akram Khan Panezai is the tribal leader today,the eldest of the three son's.
Apple orchards 
Bostan had orchards and its apple was known around pishin, but today only a few trees stand due to the scarcity of water in the area. Today most water off the land is used for farming and grazing.
