The eight gangsters accused of slaying innocent Bronx teen Lesandro Guzman-Feliz are receiving special treatment while behind bars, law enforcement sources revealed.

The men — all charged with murder in the 15-year-old’s horrific mistaken-identity killing — have been transferred out of the general population because of threats they have been receiving. Some are in protective custody at Rikers Island and the rest at other jails.

According to the New York Post, each time one of the suspects is transferred, all other inmate moves are placed on hold — and the suspects are accompanied by several prison officers and a captain who records the transfer.

It is not clear where the suspects are being held.

Two of the accused were captured in the Bronx, while six others were busted during a bust of a flophouse in New Jersey.

All eight have entered not guilty pleas.
