Product handle should be unique in Shopify. So I think you should delete all the products you imported the first time. And then import product list again.
Generally, the handle is generated due to product title.

Yes, shopify not only auto generate handle from title but also can add number after it to unique handle

eg: if already "example-handle", shopify will generate "example-hanlde-1"

So I wonder why when import by csv via bulkOperationRunMutation in the second time, it seem shopify not work properly
