Jack up the car and try rotating tyres. If there is resistance, then better to get it checked thoroughly.
Thanks for the advice.

I faced the issue for a maximum of three or four times only in 15 years! All after washing (heavy wash process with plenty of water) or when the car was left in heavy rain after a drive. Note that, in all these conditions, i used the hand brake. Anyway, the car had regular periodic maintenance and i could find break overhaul was done in regular periods as well. Hope there won't be anything serious here.
