Anyone experienced this issue before? Replaced the brake pads and still it comes out.

Yup, check the brake fluid level, but usually after changing to new pads which are thicker the brake fluid level should have come back up unless there is a leak some where. The fluid level comes back up because the brake piston are being pushed back into the calipers.

Another thing to check is the switch at the hand brake lever. If the switch is faulty, will show the brakes on even though not.....
