Sports minister Madan Mitra said the department must find out those sports-persons who were deprived of land or similar such facilities during the previous Left Front government.
The land issue came up as the name of Avtar Singh, a promoter and husband of Jyotirmoyee Sikdar, one of the state's celebrated athletes and former CPI(M) MP, was involved in the land allotted to Pinki.
The retired middle-distance runner, who was released from the Dum Dum Central Jail after a court gave her bail on July 10, was given three-cottah land off the E M Bypass by the erstwhile Left Front government.
Pinki was arrested on June 14 after she was accused of being a male by her live-in partner, a 30-year-old woman, who also alleged that she was raped by the athlete.
A PIL was moved in the Calcutta high court on July 6 alleging inhuman torture on the athlete. The court has directed the West Bengal government to file an affidavit within two weeks on the progress of the investigation.
The West Bengal Human Rights Commission has also stepped in and directed the Home, Health and Police departments to inquire into the allegations of 'torture' on Pinki in police and jail custody.
