Hi Jitendra,
I too have a zen and you wont believe I had the exact same problem. A krr krr sound that comes from the back wheel not the drivers side, the other side. This sound used to come and go and I lived with it for a long time. Then as days passed by the sound started coming more frequently,
and I took it to the workshop and you know what I found!
The Drum was very loose and was moving back and forth. The mechanic told me there should have been a washer(or sleeve) or something that was missing, hence when the wheel moved the drum used to hit against the wheel and hence the sound. He said the particular washer is not in stock and put some other washer and now the sound has stopped.
I am not sure that yours could be the same problem, but chances are that it is.

Cheers,
Nitin

First I think you should get the tyres checked (wear/tear) and rotate to see if they are jammed. It could also be a bearing problem which releases the sound at low speed.

Hope this will not loose the brakes ?? Brakes will be as effective as they are normal ?
