Imprisoned inside trader Raj Rajaratnam may be getting more inside help behind bars. The New York Post says he has an adjustable bed and balcony and a "manservant" on call.

Once a Manhattan billionaire, the 56-year-old Rajaratnam gets special treatment at the Federal Medical Center Devens, in Ayer, Mass., where he is serving an 11-year sentence. He stays in the room that is usually reserved for the very elderly.

"He's reigning like a king," an unidentified source told the Post.

Raj "has a very delightful guy doing all sorts of stuff for him—sort of like a 'manservant.' When Raj needs something, this guy gets [it] for him," the source said.

Rajaratnam's lawyers say he has diabetes and might need a kidney transplant.
