Palay Khan Khosti (Pashto: پا لے خان‎), also referred to as Palay Khosti, was a member of the Khosti Syed family of the Zhob. The Zhob Khosti tribe migrated to Balochistan, Pakistan from Khost, Afghanistan.

He was a freedom fighter and commander of the group that fought against the British Raj in 1930, at Balochistan, Pakistan. They later fought at the Baluchistan (a Commissionerate Province). Khosti was living in Zhob when he died on 01/01/1951.[citation needed]
