Suicide on ship 1931

My great grand mother was Jane Carter Younger and was one of 11 children.I am in the process of writing the story of my family, as each of the 11 siblings had a pretty amazing life.

Her older brother, Neil, had a son called Alexander Binnie Younger, born Linlithgow 28th June 1891 who was a merchant seaman.

I have copies of his record cards etc.

According to the register of deceased seamen record while serving on the Media he died on 29th December 1931 and the death description is" shock and haemorrhage following lacerations of the brain due to bullet wound self inflicted"

I have an incoming passenger list record ( for Malakuta) of him arriving in London from India on 6th March 1931, so I am assuming this one was the last journey he completed, and killed himself on the next one.

Does anyone know where I can get any information of the incident, would there have been an inquiry, would there be a passenger list showing they had his body, could I find it happened on the outbound journey or the return etc etc etc?

I have been tracing family trees for more than ten years but never experienced this kind of thing ( it just had to be on my own family!!!) so would value any advice you could give me.
