Human as a word itself is referring to people is general. So can it be in plural form which is 'humans'?

It's like making something that is already plural another plural such as 'peoples'.

There is a difference between the words human and people. People is a collective noun, so it already refers to more than one person. 

Human is a descriptive adjective or a noun. As a noun, it is singular and refers to one human being. So yes, you can say "humans", as in : He is a human; they are humans.

But, when using it as an adjective, you would always use the singular form, human. Ex: We are all members of the human race.

Hope that helps!
