Seven Maoists, including two women, were arrested in Bihar's Muzaffarpur district early on Friday -- three days ahead of Independence Day.

Acting on a tip-off, a joint team of the Special Task Force and district police raided a house in Nazirpur locality and arrested the guerrillas.

Police said they are active members of the Communist Party of India-Maoist and involved in several criminal cases.

Arms and ammunition was recovered from them.

"The arrested Maoists will be interrogated," a police official said.

India celebrates Independence Day on August 15.
