The Solution?

1. Log out Log out from Medium.com and refresh the page. Yes. Just logout from your medium account.

2. Delete Cache Sometimes, it won't still work because they store the data. For that you can just delete their site cache by opening Inspect Element => Application => Clear Site Data

3. Incognito Mode Sometimes its easier to open the URL in an incognito mode which makes sure there is no cache involved. Also you don't need to sign-out.

3. Outline to the Rescue Outline is a simple service which converts normal webpages to a readable format. Since this website caches content before reaching browser, Medium doesn't know if it came from human or search engine. Hence they allow full article.
