I tried the script, it adds the users which are in first line  in the CSV, however when I have users more than one, it gives the following error:

adding users to group "narasimha.s"
 - Cannot find an object with identity: '' under: 'DC=test,DC=local'.

CSV format:
Group                                                                      Samaccount
DL-WGK-US-Houston-Projects-XXXXXX-RW           Test102

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-Csv "C:\Users\a.narasimha.s\Desktop\Project folder creation\Adduserstogroup.txt" |
 ForEach `
   $users = @($_.samAccount -split ",")
   $group = $
   write-output "adding users to group ""$group"""
   $users |
    ForEach `
        $user = $_
        Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $group -Members $user
      { Write-Output "$user - $($error[0].exception.message)" }
